A look at what's going on in Trinidad, on H Street, and in the larger area north of Capitol Hill.
Creating architecture for the hearing impairs is a challenge and interesting to do. As an example, It requires curved corners at corridors to allow for line of sight. Plus the concerns of lighting and materials.
As an Architect I feel that I am suitably qualified to affirm that if anybody is going to be able to help the deaf community hen architects by our design expertise are the ones to do so!As a practise we regularly help design buildings to incorporate other disabilities and designing to be deaf friendly is also important! Perhaps a good start would be to review the inner materials used within buildings.
@Birmingham Architects: why is it your name links to a UK architecture firm? Do you have an office here in USA or at least in the DC Metro region?
