Design major Eduardo Landicho on designing accessible architecture
Design major Eduardo Landicho recently gave a TEDx talk on “What Defines Normal? Designing Accessible Architecture.” Eddie’s talk was part of the TEDxUCDavis symposium Metamorphosis. A 4th-year design major with a focus on architecture, Landicho discussed how we can design more inclusive standards in our architecture and set a new understanding within society to include access for all.
Landicho was born with Muscular Dystrophy and has been wheelchair-bound since the early age of five. He is studying and working to create sustainable and equitable infrastructure to develop much more inclusive environments for those with disabilities.
Currently Landicho is working on projects in DES 21 for an ADA Student Apartment; DES 180A for a Veihmeyer Hall Redesign; and in DES 165, an Open Seating plan.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
