I was forwarded this fantastic article about Chris Downey, an architect who lost his sight in 2008. A true problem solver, Chris found a way to become an inspiring, innovative, and unique designer who uses tactile drawings in braille to visualize and communicate his architecture.

Just two posts ago I wrote about how we can influence people’s senses in a space – Chris Downey takes this to a whole different level.
