Universal Design Competition

The goal of the annual Morton Kesten Universal Design Competition is to create an opportunity for students across the United States to develop universally-designed spaces and products for which they will receive recognition. The Challenge is to create an innovative design using the principles of Universal Design that support aging-in-place in one of two areas: 1) Space: a) reconceptualize an existing kitchen/bath space; or b) create a brand-new kitchen/bath space, or 2) Product: develop a product/prototype that embraces and utilizes the ideas and principles of Universal Design for use at home.
