Beyond Vision

VisABILITY Center Construction

Outside of the VisAbility Center

The VisABILITY Center will feature a Universal Design that is accessible to all people. We have contracted with Bray Architects and Moore Construction. We have also enlisted the help of internationally-recognized Architect Chris Downey, who is blind.

Mr. Downey lost his sight because of tumors on his optic nerve. He loved architecture and learned and/or created adaptations to continue his craft and provide unique insight into Universal Design.

“Chris Downey is an architect who lost his sight and gained a
new way of seeing the world.” – TED
