Future of Living with Joe Colistra

Joe Colistra believes in the power of community and that if we could share more meaningful data, instead of trying to steal it, we might see advancements beyond our wildest imaginations.

Colistra is Associate Professor of Architecture, Design, and Planning at the University of Kansas. In addition to his work with KU, he is the founder of In Situ Design, an international architecture and urban design firm. In Situ has won multiple awards and been published even more. The firm is obsessed with finding ways to use architecture as an instrument for transforming communities.

Joe is uniquely interested in merging new technology into senior living communities. An area often ignored. This conversation covers a lot of ground, from floors equipped with accelerometers, to the potential of population health data.
