Ramps and curb cuts often first come to mind when one thinks about how the built environment is designed for people with disabilities. Accessible designs, however, need to account for individuals that may not be restricted in terms of mobility but live with other impairments such as blindness or neurological and cognitive conditions. Ideally, an architectural design will allow all users to feel as though they are included and not judged. This session seeks to examine how buildings, landscapes, and urban spaces are designed to accommodate users living with disabilities. Papers can address architects who design new and rehabilitated structures as well as activist groups that seek to improve the existing built environment. This panel is open to analyses of historic or contemporary architecture and a range of methodological and theoretical approaches.
