Abstract

This paper considers how through dialogue the relationship between architectural design and disability can yield opportunities instead of constraints. Two cases drawn from ongoing ethnographic design research show possibilities and the potential of dialogue for design practice and design research. Dialogue is said to amplify silent realities—things that exist either in user, object, or use, but that stay unaccounted for. However, following the discussion of the cases, it is deemed necessary to extend the notion of dialogue from conversation to embodied skill.
