This course provides undergraduate and graduate students with an exploration of (in)accessibility through the usage of spaces through special equipment aimed at reducing one’s freedom of movement. Supplemented by normative guidance, precedents on universal design, and readings on inclusion, this course aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to accessibility and a critical examination of the design of spaces that often remain exclusive. This course is structured around analyses and design projects. A site visits are planned as part of this course.
