Architecture. Accessibly is a special course designed for deaf-blind and vision-impaired visitors.
Architecture is a human’s constant companion. It shapes our attitude towards the city and influences our mood. We often take for granted the buildings that surround us. However, for the vision-impaired, and even more so for the deaf-blind person, architecture becomes inaccessible, eliminating the image of the city from his or her outlook.
During the five classes of the Architecture. Accessibly course, participants will get acquainted with the basics of architectural principles, as well as learn about the specific features of architectural genres from different eras. Experiencing architecture through the use of tactile models will allow participants to better understand building descriptions in future, when provided by audio describers.
Each class includes a practical part, which will help participants absorb what they have learned and give them a chance to feel the logic of the architectural process.
