Codesigning Accessible Cities With Multicultural and Migrant Populations Codesigning Accessible Cities With Multicultural and Migrant Populations G. Mauricio Meja will work in collaboration with a researcher in , Colombia (Leonardo Parra Agudelo) and a researcher in Al-Quds Bard College for Art and Science, Palestine (Jens Haendeler). In the sub-award, Dr. Meja will be responsible for a third part of the project activities. In the first year, the research team from three institutions will be planning and preparing for a hybrid and joint course and its related fieldwork and co-writing the research publication in the statement and literature sections. Then, the three of us will co-teach a joint summer course with a research component about co-designing for accessible cities. Half of the course will be delivered in Phoenix and half of the course will be delivered in Bogot. We will recruit local communities and immigrant residents to do a series of workshops, to gather insights about their needs and the associated city services. We will collect research data of these case studies of design and teaching. In the second year, we will expand the experience, learning, and research. We will be planning and preparing for a second joint course and its related fieldwork and furthering our collaborative research. This time, we will co-teach a summer course offered to Al-Quds students. Drs Meja and Parra Agudelo will visit the West Bank and collaborate with prof. Haendeler. This activity will include a research component about co-designing for accessible urban areas and refugee camps. We will collect research data of this case study of design and teaching. We will write two publications during the project.
