Display: architecture designed by and for deaf and disabled people

At the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the display will focus on the design of a number of different buildings that have been shaped by the needs of deaf and disabled people. These include a deaf church, a medieval almshouse, a contemporary architect-designed private house for a disabled client, a new vision for a mental illness asylum, and items from the archive of pioneering disability activists Maggie and Ken Davis, whose determination and vision saw them successfully commission in the 1970s the first council housing that allowed disabled people to live independently outside of institutionalised care.
