Angharad Davies

I am a recent graduate in BSc Architecture and currently studying a Masters in Computational Architecture at UWE. As a parent to an Autistic child, I have used my own lived experience to drive my research and designs. Using stories from the ASD community I hope to create awareness of the need for more sensory friendly spaces and design.

Please note we are holding our Lunchtime Talks online only for now - we are looking forward to seeing you in the building again soon.

In this Lunchtime Talk, Angharad Davies will be talking about the evolution and development of the Joey Pod. The first prototype of Joey Pod was exhibited at Bristol Beacon in September, inspired by their son's love of music, but fear of unpredictability and overcrowding at live events. They will take us through the journey of designing the pod, how it has evolved and how it can be beneficial in public spaces, within the city, for people with neurological conditions.
