Destination Medical Center Economic Development Agency is offering FREE design workshops to help prepare participants interested in entering the Assistive Tech Challenge pitch competition. Workshop participants will learn to take their idea from a raw concept to a workable solution that will address challenges faced by individuals with disabilities.
Each fast-paced, hands-on workshop will focus on a different area of assistive technology-related design thinking.
Our City, a national nonprofit working to transform how people engage with their cities, will facilitate the sessions in partnership with the Assistive Tech Challenge.
A few months ago, DMC developed the design process for the public realm/public infrastructure for the St. Marys Place sub-district and 2nd Street Corridor. With the data collection phase complete, we recently initiated the next step in the process: the Design Sprint.
This process called for teams of stakeholders – property owners, neighborhood leaders, Mayo Clinic representatives, and city staff – to work with a team of designers to develop concepts that address issues such as pedestrian circulation (think streetscape, skyways, and tunnels), parking, and neighborhood connections.
