Join a series of presentations about specific projects and design processes highlighting how collaboration with people who have personal experience of disability can enhance and enrich architectural design, both for practitioners during the design process and for users of the resulting buildings and spaces. Speakers include Dr Jos Boys, co-founder of The Dis/Ordinary Architecture Project, Dr Graham Pullin, author of the manifesto Design Meets Disability (MIT, 2009), and Chambers McMillan Architects.

The day is specifically geared towards architectural students and practitioners, as well as designers and design educators, but all are welcome.

In collaboration with Accentuate, History of Place. Supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
