On Saturday 20th October 2018 three DisOrdinary artists – Rachel Gadsden, Zoe Partington and Noemi Lakmaier – will be running interactive drawing and audio-description workshops as part of the Bartlett School of Architecture and UCL’s contribution to this year’s theme “Activism and the Architecture of Change”.

We also have a small exhibition about the Architecture Beyond Sight research workshop, as part of the Festival, in the foyer of Bartlett, 22 Gordon Street, WC1H 0QB. This was commissioned by Prof Alan Penn, Dean of the Faculty of the Built Environment UCL – and held in September 2018 – as the first stage in designing a course that enables blind and partially sighted people to study architecture. The exhibition shows our one-day intensive design workshop, exploring differently visual and non-visual design methods and processes for creating architecture.
