Sustainable Design Strategies and the Future of Accessibility:
A CDSC brown-bag lunch lecture with Johnna S. Keller

Thursday, October 26th 2017 | 12:30pm -2:00pm
R-380, Learning & Environmental Sciences Building, St. Paul Campus

Sustainable architecture in the 21st century tends to work without explicit attention to disability. In this public lecture, Johnna S. Keller discusses ways that architecture can consciously consider both sustainability and accessibility as creative design challenges, thus promoting a socially just and ecologically restorative environment.

Light snacks and beverages provided. Feel free to bring your own lunch!

The LES building has accessible entrances via the east side basement level entrance and the west side of the building. ​A gender-neutral/all-gender restroom is located in the basement of Coffey Hall, about a 5 min walk from the LES building. This is accessible through the Gopher Way. Please email Angela at carte489@umn.edu with access needs or accommodation requests.

Event Co-Sponsors Include – The College of Design; The Dept. of Geography, Environment & Society; The Institute on the Environment; The Disability Resource Center; and Freedom by Design.
