First building for the deaf in New York
November 7, 2017
New York based Galluadet University has the world's first building designed specifically for deaf students. This is the first to use the DeafSpace principles to meet the needs of the hearing impaired.
DeafSpace principles are building guidelines to improve how deaf people interact with their surroundings. The architects came up with more than 150 design elements that address the five main problem areas for the deaf - space, mobility, light and color, and sound.
DeafSpace aims to build awareness and sensitivity of future building designs. Every detail, from the floor-plan to the colors on the wall, are taken into consideration with DeafSpace.
