For designers and policy makers, homelessness has become the new core competency, influencing every decision made about the public realm and the built environment. Learn from empathetic innovators who are crafting new policies to both engage and empower people who have been traumatized by the experience of homelessness.
If our goal is to develop a community that is accessible to all, why do we only use the minimum requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act? We will examine the current approach to accessibility and look at simple, intuitive strategies for developing a complete community, with access as an integral component.
How do we recognize the multiple histories, cultural traditions, identities, and populations that have shaped landscapes of the past and could construct landscapes of the future? This panel will explore the ways in which representation and equity can creatively inform design processes and be intentional outcomes of our work.
