Universal Design Summit 7

Universal Design Summit is a preeminent conference in North America, drawing experts in universal design from across the globe. UD Summit has traditionally focused on universal housing and inclusive communities. Event organizers are pleased to announce the expansion of UD Summit to include inclusive design in digital spaces.  Our current plan is to offer simultaneous virtual and in-person conferences.

UD Summit 7 will be held in May 2021 in St. Louis and attract several hundred designers, developers, builders, contractors, and architects from across the country and the globe. UD Summit 7 will provide exceptional content in the areas of affordable housing for all ages and abilities, universal design in public spaces, physical and digital community access, and universal design in digital spaces.  A pre-conference seminar will focus on ADA regulations and accessibility requirements for housing.  Continuing education credits will be offered through a variety of professional associations including AIA, IDCEC, IOTA and more.  Dozens of vendors of related products and services will be on display throughout the conference.  Opportunities abound to network with inclusive-minded professionals from varied industries.

If there is an imposing health risk to participants due to COVID-19, the event will be held virtually in the same time frame. Our current plan is to offer simultaneous virtual and in-person conferences.

CAD versus Sketching

This is the first article in an ongoing series by Dr. James Self in which he explores designers’ approaches and tools in support of a thoughtful, reflective design activity.

CAD vs. Sketching, Why Ask? ·

A continuing issue in industrial design education is when to allow students to move from sketch work to 3D CAD modelling during studio practice—or whether to let them use CAD at all! I’ve heard of first year undergraduate modules where students are ‘banned’ from the use of CAD in an attempt to encourage sketchbook work and more explorative conceptual design practice. In my view this approach is somewhat draconian and does little to deal with the underlying reasons that attract less experienced designers to the comparative certainty of 3D CAD.

Tomorrow – The movie

Showing solutions, telling a feel-good story… this may be the best way to solve the ecological, economical and social crises that our countries are going through.

After a special briefing for the journal Nature announced the possible extinction of a part of mankind before the end of the 21st century, Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent, together with a team of four people, carried out an investigation in ten different countries to figure out what may lead to this disaster and above all how to avoid it.

During their journey, they met the pioneers who are re-inventing agriculture, energy, economy, democracy and education. Joining those concrete and positive actions which are already working, they began to figure out what could be tomorrow’s world…
