Are you interested in learning about universal residential design, what it involves, and how to get started in it? Deborah Pierce, author of the book The Accessible Home: Designing for All Ages and Abilities, will be talking about her practice, the book and how she came to write it, and how you can expand your skill set and market to clients, including persons with disabilities and those wishing to age in their homes. Deb has built her practice specializing in this work, and emphasizes building close relationships with the clients and families. Her goal is to pass on the knowledge she has gained over years of experience, and perhaps even create a small group of interested architects to share referrals.
