Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States
The Initiative for Inclusive Design (IID) seeks to empower students to recognize and problematize the current limitations that contemporary design discipline/practice presents, and to encourage them to work and think progressively.
Through active participation in the architecture community (Lectures, workshops, events, etc.) at the University of Michigan, and through group research, this independent student advisory board will:
-Initiate conversation among students and faculty regarding disability and design.
-Foster an open network of dialogue within the architecture program, respecting every voice.
-Diversify, strengthen, and expand students’ design skills through research, site visits, lectures, workshops, interdisciplinary design charrettes, and student-led projects.
IID is a voluntary student organization and is affiliated with the Taubman College.
