How can body awareness make us better, more inclusive designers?

Whether we notice it or not, our offices, homes, and other built spaces greatly impact our overall health and sense of belonging. Many of us spend our entire workday locked in a chair, breathing recirculated air, and focused entirely on external demands. In this Dine & Design event, we’ll refocus on our bodies and wellness as a means of building awareness of the design choices that can improve comfort and access for people with a wide range of needs.

Stretch your mind and body

Hannah Silver, Founder of Informal/Function, will introduce us to the basics of inclusive design and lead a gentle stretch. We’ll round it out with wine and snacks on the Stoel Rives deck with sweeping views of Portland. You don’t need to be a designer or yogi to appreciate this after-work destressing activity – all you need is a body!

Approved for AIA LU|HSW credit for continuing education.

Friday, July 30th
