Abstract

We acknowledge that all participants have different knowledges, understandings, and capabilities. Subjective experiences through our bodily senses can be a central tool for understand- ing our environment and situations. We suggest that by using haptic and tactile design methods in a workshop setting, we aim to challenge normative ways of understanding and to interpret architectural and design sketches, visualizations and models. By providing alternative ways to understand a workshop material within participatory methods, does not only make the workshop experience more accessible for participants who are not used to interpret architectural sketches. It also provides better accessibility for people with visual impairments and cognitive disabilities, and, it also stretches the interpretation in general by questioning the visual and hearing norm.
