Design Core Detroit is licensing a design competition for commercial businesses from the city of Montreal to recognize “inclusive design” that’s created spaces that are welcoming to all in Detroit.
Open Call for Submissions: August 31 – December 30, 2016
The goal of the annual Morton Kesten Universal Design Competition is to create an opportunity for students across the United States to develop universally-designed spaces and products for which they will receive recognition. The Competition is in association with the Morton Kesten Summit, which is held every two years and features the latest developments in aging-in-place efforts by organizations and professionals from across the country.
To create an innovative design using the principles of Universal Design that support aging-in-place in one of two areas:
- Space: a) reconceptualize an existing kitchen/bath space; or b) create a brand new kitchen/bath space, or
- Product: develop a product/prototype that embraces and utilizes the ideas and principles of Universal Design for use at home.
