This episode of Disrupting Design catches up with Jason Nolan, director of Ryerson University's Responsive Ecologies Lab and an autistic self-advocate, to talk about some of his design prototypes for special needs children (such as a rocker that encourages self-stimulatory behaviours in autistic children). It also looks at the new Bridgepoint Active Healthcare building to consider whether or not architecture can change our experience of illness and pain. Lastly, the episode explores the phenomenon of rammed earth architecture. The source materials are locally available, local, abundant, non-toxic, durable and energy efficient. Is this the solution for sustainable housing?
