Homes are living laboratories for unfettered design innovation on behalf of greater accessibility. When people with disabilities partner with curious and clever architects, the results can be striking. This course will explore the new frontiers in design—accessible, universal, inclusive, and optimum—using the residential environment as a starting point.

A leading expert whose practice is dedicated solely to accessible design will share:

  • New independent research and insights from architects, builders, and homeowners creating accessible homes.
  • Images, drawings, and photos of 25 such homes in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
  • Lessons learned from architects, builders, occupational therapists, disability advocates, and people living with disabilities of all types.

Course expires 02/08/2024
