Toward a Human-centered Design Practice
Learn how designing with a disability can unlock new ideas in the built environment.
About this Event

What is human-centered design? It focuses on each person’s specific experiences with place and the human body’s response, often related to the senses.

Explore how designing with a disability can unlock new ideas in the built environment that benefit everyone. Join us in learning about human-centered design from the following world-class leaders and speakers:

  • Chris Downey, principal at Architecture for the Blind
  • Hansel Bauman, founding partner of HB/a+p and former Gallaudet University Campus Architect
