At the AIA convention in Chicago, professor Thomas Fisher entreats architects to “take responsibility” for designing healthier spaces.
In addition to the health of the users of design and architecture we need to consider how poor design can "Dis Able" otherwise able bodied, sensed and minded people. This in turn can negatively impact health and the safety of the building, space, design users. It is time for ID’s and Architects to sit with Human Factors/Ergonomic experts who provide all of the human centred design research from the mind to the body to the senses. Then and only then will Designers ensure designs look great and function well. JESleeth Principal Optimal Performance Consultants Canada
