Anyone know of any designs made for blind clients?

Also, how does architects go beyond the visual, and add tactile, sound, and smell to architecture?

question: does glulam wood loses its tactility and smell?

if it does then what are other effective ways to bend wood?

edit: nvm steam bending can be used.

here's some that I've found

here's an article about tactile architecture:



I've also heard that aluminum skyscrapers gives off uncomfortable static electricity effects when felt up.

I think architecture that appeals to other senses is really cool. Since I was a child I've always had one hand on thouching the walls of any building or hallway that I walk across.

I've been walking around with my eyes closed and I think that it is important for blind people to feel safe about not being robbed. I was walking down the street one night when some guy started talking from behind me and I swung at him by instinct.

It feels safer inside the university, but large empty spaces can be confusing sometimes.
