Oct 21, 2016 12:00am ‐ Oct 21, 2016 12:00am

Credits: None available.


Are accessibility requirements a burden to the quality of a project’s design, or can they enhance both universal usability and design integrity? A panel composed of a landscape architect, a state agency representative, and an accessibility representative focuses on case studies of highly designed responses to specific accessibility regulations.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the basic principles of accessible design as applied in urban landscape architecture.
  • Learn specific design choices relative to accessibility and Universal Design for "special" populations, and how they can be of benefit in all design contexts.
  • Clarify black, white, and "grey" areas of understanding regarding federal and state accessibility regulations and guidelines.
  • Investigate imaginative design responses to landscape-related accessibility regulations and guidelines through case study examples of built work.
