Where did “universal design” come from, and where is it headed? Will our future be populated with products that work for everyone, or we will increasingly use devices customized for an audience of one? How do we acknowledge individual differences while building a more accessible world?

Join Gianfranco Zaccai (Continuum), Jon Marshall (MAP Project office), Scott Summit (3D Systems), Rie Nørregaard (Quirky), and moderator Aimi Hamraie (Vanderbilt University) for a spirited conversation about the origins and future of universal design and accessibility.
