Two pioneering UK architects discuss disability-led design in this New Now Next talk produced by the Irish Architecture Foundation and supported by Arup.
In this free public talk, architects Jos Boys and Richard Dougherty reveal how disability can be a creative force rather than a design ‘problem’. They will discuss The DisOrdinary Architecture Project, a collaboration that develops and promotes new ways of working, led by the creativity and experiences of disabled and deaf artists.
Jos co-founded DisOrdinary Architecture with disabled artist Zoe Partington in 2008, having previously co-founded the 1980s feminist architecture practice and research group Matrix Design Co-operative. Richard will discuss (in sign language, with an interpreter) his experience as a deaf architect and his work with DisOrdinary Architecture to design a festival starting from the sensory and performative space of deaf culture and sign language.
Together, they open up a radical approach to equity and inclusion in architecture.
