25 years after the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law, what progress has been made to accommodate the wide spectrum of human abilities? Have we moved beyond guidelines to inherently design with everyone in mind? Join the conversation as our panelists explore the history of this landmark civil rights legislation, including the cultural impact it has had on design, how it has changed the lives of people with disabilities, and what can be done to meet the best practices for design as we continue to look toward the future. AIA member architects will receive 2 hours of AIA-CES HSW credit. Registered California architects will receive 1.5 hours of credit toward the 5 hours required by CAB for license renewal.
