The Autism ASPECTSS Design Index, published in 2013, is a research-based framework of 7 design concepts facilitative of architectures for autism. These 7 concepts are: Acoustics, Spatial Sequencing, Escape, Compartmentalisation, Transition, Sensory zoning and Safety. The following map documents the footprint and the impact of this index on architectural scholarship, research, production and discussion across the globe through our own practice, intellectual discourse, student's work and other architectural practices, all informed by the ASPECTSS conceptual framework.
