The webinar highlighted example projects where historic buildings were renovated or adapted to be accessible to all, including individuals using wheelchairs and those with other disabilities. Key subtopics covered were preserving original features, integrating necessary tools and features, designing spaces for light, sound, and tactile sensitivity, and ensuring a welcoming environment for all visitors.
