Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present a portion of the results obtained over the course of the work carried out as part of the "Designing tailored spaces for the absence of memory", research from the Healthy Architecture & City, Research Team at the University of Seville. The objective of this research is to determine the best physical environment for allowing Alzheimer's patients to carry out their daily life with the greatest possible safety, accessibility and independence. Here we share a variety of international buildings with architectural value that have contributed to the evolution and creation of a new type of arrangement for Alzheimer's patients. The principal contribution of this report is to define the characteristics of this new architectural typology.
