24 Hour Universal Design Challenge

The 24 Hour Universal Design Challenge will invited design professionals in Ireland, from a range of disciplines, to take part on teams of approximately 8 people. Engineering and designer teams were challenged to come up with ideas to allow disabled people to get around Dublin city, writes John Reynolds STRONG COFFEE, intense collaboration and a wide range of ideas and opinions fuelled Dublin’s first 24-hour Universal Design Challenge last Friday and Saturday, and the capital’s streets might soon become a little easier to navigate as a result.

Five diverse teams of web and product designers, architects, engineers, design students and partners discovered that the city presents a surprising number of obstacles to those with disabilities who are trying to get from A to B.
