An Exercise with ADA
Saturday, January 21, 2023 | 1PM – 4PM
Center for Architecture and Design, 1010 Western Ave., Seattle, WA 98104
Everyone should be able to easily enter buildings and move about them freely! Come explore the world through someone else’s shoes and see how challenging some real-life scenarios are and how design can make them better.
In this workshop, join Bassetti Architects, Studio Pacifica, and the Disability Empowerment Center to review some ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards, why the standards are needed, and how design can go above and beyond to make sure our buildings can be experienced by everyone.
Our youth workshops encourage students ages 10-16 to tackle social, environmental, and engineering challenges. With an extended emphasis on more conceptual issues and demanding architectural concepts, these workshops are perfect for older students. Hosted at Seattle-area architectural offices, SAF staff and volunteer architects support participants as they plan, build, and present solutions to imaginative and thought-provoking design challenges
Please note: All workshops will require masks for all youth, adults, and staff (no matter vaccination status) for the entirety of the event. All those who are eligible for vaccination are required to be vaccinated to attend and show vaccination proof upon entry.
We offer need-based scholarships for all SAF Youth Programs. For details about scholarships, email Program Director, Marina Szende at Marina@seattlearchitecture.org
