Gordon Legge's Abstract

Designing Visually Accessible Spaces for People with Low Vision

The visual accessibility of a space refers to the effectiveness with which vision
can be used to travel safely through the space and to pursue the intended
activities in the space. Architectural designs that take visual accessibility into
account will enhance mobility for people with low vision. I will summarize several
empirical studies illustrating the impact of vision status on perception of
architectural features. I will then describe a computational model, implemented
as software, that predicts the visibility of architectural features for people with low
