Designing for autism – Guildry Geddes Awards Exhibition 2015

Designing for Autism Exhibition Flyer

The exhibition showcases innovative design work of architectural students at the University of Dundee.  Over the course of last year, the Architectural Design Unit carried out in-depth research into designing for adults on the Autistic Spectrum. At present there is is shortage of suitable accommodation and facilities for adults with autism in the UK and few published design guidelines.

The students identified suitable sites within Dundee that are all currently vacant or earmarked for development. Each student went on to design a housing scheme which also incorporated a social enterprise element which could provide employment opportunities and embed the scheme within the community.

The exhibition takes place in Dundee Central Library, The Wellgate from the 21st September – 3rd October 2015.

A presentation and discussion of the project will take place on the opening night Monday 21st September 6-8pm.
