[Architecture Without Vision] Challenging the Societal Dependence upon Vision in Perception
Sep 23, 2016
The researchers conducted a literature search, an analysis of buildings designed for the visually impaired, and interviews with blind individuals and those who work with the blind. This initial research informed the development of a set of principles for multi-sensorial design of built environments. Space. Edge. Path. Transition. Threshold. Landmark. The researchers tested the viability of these principles through application to the design of a proposed building, a “Creative Co-Lab,” in which blind and sighted users would come together on the Baltimore waterfront to create collaboratively and learn about perception without vision.
