Empathy Bridge for Autism
Highly Commended Helen Hamlyn Design Awards
Empathy Bridge for Autism is a message that people with autism are like everyone, although they see, hear and speak in quite unique ways. You can experience how they sense the world through three different tools and a mobile application. Low-cost materials are used so that more people can empathise with those similar to the researcher's younger brother with autism.
"This set of
sensory tools can help designers and architects empathise with a more
neuro-diverse audience and create more inclusive spaces."
