The fourth Universal Design Summit in October was an outstanding success bringing together speakers, experts, and participants at an international level.
Through these Summits, the Starkloff Disability Institute in collaboration with the R.L. Mace Universal Design Institute (UDI) staff has provided a unique educational experience showcasing good examples of universal design that can be incorporated into housing and neighborhoods.
As North America’s only conference focused exclusively on housing and communities usable by all, UDS4 continued a tradition of providing exceptional content on universal design in housing, sustainable design, community design, and affordability. UDS4 offered learning opportunities through informal discussion, breakout, and plenary sessions. The conference featured exhibits, design charettes, workshops, and a tour of universally designed housing and neighborhoods.
