Gateway Arch Universal Design Project Video
The video describes how people with disabilities joined with designers to make renovations of the Gateway Arch Museum in St. Louis, Missouri
“The Gateway Arch Universal Design.” is a video about how people with disabilities joined with designers to make renovations of the Gateway Arch Museum in St. Louis, Missouri, welcoming for all people, including all people with disabilities.
There is also a recording that describes each of the pictures and short videos that are shown in the video while the speaker is talking. This recording is supplemental to the video because there simply were not enough spaces in the video to allow for effective video descriptions.
Those who find viewing the video not possible or feasible, we recommend listening to the video first and then listening to the audio recording. There is additional information in that recording that anybody may enjoy hearing.
The video has an ASL interpreter.
