About The Video

An educational documentary addresses the meaning of "Universal Design" in single family home construction.

The origin of this documentary stems from an Interior Design class project assignment required in the Seattle Pacific University course, Universal Design in Housing. The students in the class of 2005, were involved in the redesign of an existing floor plan previously built by a local builder. They worked directly with the builder and architect ascertaining a variety of site criteria as well as structural considerations. The primary goal was to redesign the spaces in the home using universal design principles in addition to other specific design goals. The students presented the proposed plan to the builder for potential construction. The builder approved the plan and went on to construct the new two-story, 2,500 sq.ft. 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home.

You will view the highlights of this real-life dynamic process including the groundbreaking ceremony. A brief overview of the trend to move toward UD in the greater Seattle area is also included.

"Classroom Meets Concrete gives me hope that New York can catch on to the things you are doing out West. I also thought the production quality was first rate, as was the narration." MO, New York
