The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with is led by Gina Hilberry, AIA, Principal Architect of Cohen Hilbery Architects; Chris Downey, AIA, Principle, Architecture for the Blind; Emmanuel Andrade, MPA, RA, NCARB, Senior Project Manager at the Office of Planning within the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance. This webcast is part of the IHCD International Inclusive Design Webcast Series in Memory of Eliza Forrest Kaye Bromfield.
