Rosemarie Rossetti – Champion of Universal Design
October 12, 2021
Building for energy efficiency and environmental friendliness is great, but if homes, offices, and other buildings aren’t universally accessible, they aren’t fulfilling their purpose. Universal Design enables anyone to fully explore, utilize, and enjoy their surroundings regardless of age or ability.
Our guest is Rosemarie Rossetti, an expert of Universal Design, aging in place, and accessible design. Rosemarie was disabled in an accident and used that as an opportunity to become a leading voice for the importance of easily accessible design in residential and commercial applications. Now a motivational speaker, Rosemarie lives in the Universal Design Living Laboratory, a demonstration home built for ease of access and usability.
