  • Summary: People with intellectual disabilities, a degree of mild disability and of age, use artistic expressions as a vehicle for expression, communication and cultural adaptation. Significant changes towards more dynamic conceptions of intellectual disability, based on greater interactions, intellectual disability, have led to the promotion of positive artistic and sensory activities perceptual and communication results. Internships have been conducted for five years, among architecture students, students from other areas of knowledge (Pharmacy, Nursing, Physiotherapy and Communication) and people with intellectual disabilities, on cognitive, sensory and where various artistic perceptions have been contrasted and assumed, to express some difficulties in the use of built environments. The implementation, of some artistic perceptions assumed, in cognitive strategies of architectural generation is beneficial for the use of buildings intended for people with intellectual disabilities. Two real examples of buildings where known artistic embolars have been applied, in their design beginnings, are provided and described, which have produced an increase in their spatial understanding and recognition, after a time longer than ten years as Users.

  • Abstract: People with intellectual disabilities, older age and mild degree of disabilities, use artistic expressions as a vehicle of expression, communication and cultural adaptation. The significant changes produced towards the most dynamics of intellectual disability, based in greater interactions of intellectual disability, have led to the promotion of artistic and sensory activities, with results positive, in perception and communication. Workshops have been made, during five years, between students of architecture, students of other areas of knowledge (pharmacy, nursing, physiotherapy and communication) and people with intellectual disability on cognitive, sensory and social aspects, where different artistic perceptions have been contrasted and assumed to express some difficulties in the use of built environments. The implementation of some assumed artistic perceptions in cognitive strategies of architectural generation is beneficial for the use of buildings destined to people with intellectual disability. There are provided and described two current examples of buildings, in which they have been applied in the beginning of the project. Known artistic embodiments that, after more than ten years as users, have increased their understanding and recognition of space.
