Projects That Remove Barriers Were Exhibited
A statement on the exhibition reads as follows: The World we live in today is very diverse and complex. Our world includes a rich variety of individuals – children, youngsters, the elderly and people with disabilities and difficulties – and communities that come from different places and circumstances. However, often goods and services are not designed based on our differences. Based on this everyday problem, participating graduate students of ARCH/INAR 501 Interdisciplinary Workshop designed products/spaces in a creative way based on the theme ‘Designing for one who due to an ability/disability is excluded from the environment he/she exists.
