Evolving from barrier-free design concepts in the 1960s, the term Universal Design was coined by the American architect Robert Mace in the 1980s. Since then, the concept has crossed from architecture to product design, guided by seven founding principles aimed at creating the same opportunities and spaces for all persons without adaptations. Come join us for a discussion on how companies are implementing Universal Design today in reinventing their offices to support accessibility and use for all humans. This is an accessible event to those with hearing impairment as there will be ASL interpreter part of the panel. This event is generously sponsored by WB Wood, Haworth, JLL International Desk and M Moser Associates.
