ADA 25 CHICAGO SYMPOSIUM WITH MOPD AND LOCAL DESIGNERS

Terry Guen Design Associates is working with the Mayor’s Office of People with Disabilities (MOPD) and other local designers to organize a symposium that will accentuate the importance of keeping universal accessibility at the forefront of the design process. The goal of the symposium is to have designers converse openly with MOPD before potential projects arrive. The symposium aims to have a constructive impact on the design community with a review and analysis of the best and worst accessibility projects so that designers can successfully integrate universal accessibility into their future designs, which will be utilized by the general public with and without disabilities.
