This course complies with California licensure requirements for accessibility (SB 1608 and California Business and Professions Code Section 5600.05),the Texas BOE requirement related to barrier-free design, and provides essential information about accessibility requirements applicable in most states.. In June of 2014, the AIA California Council and aecKnowledge released a Call for Submissions for examples of solutions that illustrate the innovative potential of Universal Design and that address specific accessibility code issues. This 60-minute video course features the most innovative submissions of both built and unbuilt work. Steve Castellanos, FAIA, the Executive Director for the California Commission on Disability Access (CCDA) and a former California State Architect, narrates and provides insightful commentary on how each solution addresses the needs of people with a wide range of ability levels, how the solution can improve people’s abilities to navigate and effectively function in the built environment, and how building owners, design professionals and people with disabilities can apply the solution to improve the built environment for everyone.
