4I Effective Comm.: Architectural Facilities & Transportation
Effective communication within current physical facilities remains a challenge for people with disabilities because physical barriers confused the information being delivered. Designers often focus on the aesthetic of the architectural wonders (e.g.: columns) without considering the effects they have on communication and it's effectiveness (e.g.: echo, line-of-sight). Communication within transportation system is a critical method of interacting with the general public. However, receiving travel information remains challenging for most people with disabilities. This workshop will help instill the basic holistic view of communication and it’s effectiveness around the physical barriers (architectural) and transportation systems.
