For this exhibition, we have collaborated on two tactile maps. Placed at the centre of the exhibition, you can touch the colored maps and browse them with your fingers. They illustrate two architecture plans of famous site : the pioneer Hogeywek Dementia Village and the Normansfield Hampton Wick Hospital, both pioneering places to improve the life of disabled people.
