DESCRIPTION

A special social story for visitors with autism spectrum disorders will make their visit to Garage more comfortable.

One of the shows of this summer season at Garage is a solo exhibition of world-renowned architect Sir David Adjaye. The exhibition explores all aspects of Adjaye’s practice: his designs for private homes and public buildings, furniture and materials he uses, as well as models and projects that have yet to be built.

The design for the exhibition was created by Adjaye Associates, which David Adjaye found in 2000. The studio has fourteen built projects across the world, including the campus of the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO (2010). 

For the adapted tours for visitors with developmental and learning disabilities, Garage’s Department of Inclusive Programs has developed a range of extra learning materials and visual aids that help participants remember what they have learnt and encourage them to be active during the tour. A social story available at the website and at the information stand will help prepare for the visit.

Noise cancelling headphones to use during the visit are also available at the information stand.

An experienced teacher will accompany the group throughout the tour to provide extra support for visitors with developmental and learning disabilities.

The tour will be followed by a workshop based on the works in the exhibition.
