Accessibility Design

In collaboration with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, I worked with a group of MFA students from Parsons School for Design to imagining new ways for people with accessibility needs to experience art and history in museums.

The way-finding mobile application we designed would allows visitors to create a customized map through the galleries for their accessibility needs. The visitor will be able to create a path to current exhibitions, galleries, and artists they choose to see while creating a route that best suites their accessible needs.

We took details surveys of every gallery; what type of natural light verse dime lights, ambience, gallery have an echo, wood floor or carpet, is there stairs/elevator, is there a restroom near by. We paper prototypes and user tested with an advisor panels that offered feedback to supported the decisions and development of the app prototype.
