Short oral presentation


The new office building of the Finnish Association of People with Physical Disabilities was taken into use in 2008. It is accessible and equal for all, and it did not cost more than any ordinary office building. It is a good reference in office planning: how to do good and accessible architecture with no extra costs. Succeeding in a project like this, however, requires lots of knowledge, wide views and a strong will.
