The Inclusive architecture course comprises 10 lectures which are designed to give an understanding of what inclusive architecture is, who it affects, why it is needed and how it should be incorporated into the design of new buildings, existing spaces and their surrounding environments.
The lectures explain the relevant principles used in designing inclusive buildings and include best practice examples. It will also highlight common elements in existing buildings which exclude persons with disabilities through examples and a practical workshop.
This is a course for those who desire to know their legal responsibilities in the design and management of a building as well as learn skills development for current and future design opportunities.

Part B: Practical workshop (in Person)
This workshop will comprise me taking a group of the learners with a practical walk through an existing building facility where we are able to highlight the current barriers to persons with disabilities and the positive design aspects that exist. The course will have certain “on loan” demo wheelchairs, sets of crutches, walker/s and blindfolds. The group will take it in turns to use the different items during our walkthrough to experience and gain a closer understanding of the difficulties of moving through the built environment with a disability.
