OLIN Labs members serve as advisers on new ASLA Universal Design Guide
The ASLA has proudly launched the Universal Design Resource Guide. This new guide demonstrates the necessity to design for Disabled people’s unique needs. If we want everyone to participate in public life, we must design and build an inclusive public realm.
"This guide serves as an entry point into Universal Design, asking designers to assess our existing design models and projects, and to include disabled folks as stakeholders and experts in the design process," said Alexa Vaughn, Associate ASLA, a Deaf landscape designer at OLIN. "As a Deaf landscape designer, I am elated that landscape architects, designers, planners, elected officials, and beyond have started to think about Universal Design."
Congratulations to OLIN Lab members Alexa Vaughn & Danielle Toronyi who served on the advisory panel!
