Title: Expanding Experiential Perception
Author: Denault, Allison
Abstract: By understanding the affects of built space on those who have limited physical or mental abilities, we are able to create space that could facilitate their very specific needs. Currently, there are many ways to facilitate those with limited abilities, such as the American Disabilities Act of 1990 regulations and codes. This, however, does not begin to describe the effects of built architecture to the perceived observer with disabilities. Designing for a specific group of people, specifically children with autism, allows for the design to enhance their lives. This could be beneficial for some, and even help “treat” others. This specialized mixed-use housing development would be designed through a series of built artifacts that would bridge the gap between designer and client. It would also allow objects used for therapeutic reasons to be incorporated into the design in an essential way. Located next to the Rochester Autism Center, in Rochester, Minnesota, the program calls for temporary living residences, classrooms, and sensory rooms.
