Engaging in Access to Design

Brianna Blaser, DO-IT staff

High school and college students with disabilities interested in architecture, landscape, interior, and other design fields gathered this June for the AccessDesign workshop. Students spent one day at the University of Washington and another at one of the leading architecture firms in Seattle. The event was a great opportunity for students to learn about design degrees; meet professionals in the field, including those with disabilities; interact with successful college and graduate students with disabilities; and participate in hands-on design activities.
