“Beyond Access” – Alternative Design Podcast Releases New Episode

What if we are missing a transformational opportunity to rethink the experience of space by only “checking the boxes” on accessibility standards? In Episode 12, we take a deep dive into the etymology of “normal” and discuss how this term has propped up power structures that have continued to limit how marginalized bodies experience space. Tune in as we discuss how the built environment can go “beyond access” to embrace equity and support differences.

Our guests are AJ Paron, SANDOW Design Group Executive President and Design Futurist; Joshua A. Halstead, ArtCenter College of Design and Designmatters Teacher and Design Activist; Matt May, Head of Inclusive Design for Adobe.
