My New Everyday Life
BY NORA AMES
@ PECHAKUCHA NIGHT AT THE CHICAGO ARCHITECTURE BIENNIAL
ON OCT 30, 2015
“Obviously, living in a wheelchair is a challenge but is a normal life for many. Wheelchair living requires constant mapping out of acceptable routes and services –like bathrooms– and destinations –like restaurants.”
Nora used to enjoy runs by Lake Michigan, running by herself or with coworkers and friends. 13 months ago she had a medical condition taking her out of the workplace and changing her perspective forever. In this presentation the effect of design on accessibility is discussed.
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, February 15th, 2016.
