        • Description
        • This competition is a call for ideas to design a building block of an inclusive school environment that will uniquely enhance the quality of life for teens and adults with disabilities who participate in the Easter Seals VIP Academy.

          Your design should support the program goals of providing these young adults with the vocational/life skills they require to lead fully productive lives. Traditionally little or no thought has been given to the environments in which these crucial services are delivered.

          Utilizing inclusive design principles such as:

          Sensory Awareness
          Enhancing Learning
          Flexibility and adaptability
          Health and well-being
          Safety and Security
          Your building block should consider (but not be limited to) the following spaces:

          Gym/Fitness Center
          Model residential apartment
          Outdoor access
          Small group spaces
          Individual study areas
          Personal Care and Therapy
          Technology Integration
          Storage (for physical disability aids, etc.)
          Your designs can focus on all or some of the spaces listed above. Size and location are left to the discretion of the entrant.
