A project by designer Amanda Collen and supported by a Professional Development Grant from her firm, DLR Group, the interactive exhibit allows the public to experience the challenges that our built environment creates for those who are disabled.
“The general public is often unaware of the challenges people with disabilities face when interacting with the built environment. My aim is to bring awareness to those obstacles through an interactive exhibit and to advocate for codes that make buildings and spaces equally accessible for all users,” said Amanda Collen. “I’m grateful to DLR Group for this opportunity to explore more deeply the need for ADA codes and how those codes impact the daily lives of people experiencing mobility related disabilities.”
