    Our studio class on Friday was interesting. We are to design a live work unit in the city of Pheobus, VA and it has to be Handicap accessible. Instead of describing what we needed to do they showed us what it's like to be in a wheel chair. The presentation woke me up from my daydreaming of livework units. I have to admit I was in a zombie state of mind when I came to class on Friday.

    Here is one the students trying to get into the bathroom


    Another student rolling his way to the fire exit.


    Here are the Professors showing us their team spirit. Look at his legs they look like he's really paralyzed.

    I caught one them of guard. She's showing us how the handicap get off to use the bathroom.

    Being in a wheelchair is a bummer.

      This is a real message to the designers to remind them how to design through thinking of everyone who'd use the building..and it's not just a design of futuristic form and an image of complex blocks rendered and presented well on a sheet! ... thx Mark

      Jack and cokes are good but Manhattan's are better.
