SOCIAL PROJECT EXPERIENCE

A-Day-in-a-Wheelchair

Project A-DAY-IN-A-WHEELCHAIR (1999)
Alvin initiated this public education project to promote awareness of wheelchair accessibility in Singapore. He put 150 participants comprising architects, urban planners from HDB and URA, transport planners from LTA and MRT, students and teachers, into wheelchairs and have them go on a 'day's journey' to experience for themselves what it would be like to be wheelchair-bound. The participants discovered the challenges in taking public transport, the difficulty in entering many public buildings, the inaccessibility due to road design with kerbs as obstacles, the unfriendly height of many public phone and the inconvenience of buying food in a food court, etc. Jin facilitated the team that comprised the Swiss Ambassador to Singapore, Mr Raymond Loretan.
