Barrier-free Vehicles Park
Booth concept
The Japanese population is aging at an unprecedented pace, and there is a growing need to integrate people with physical handicaps into society in ways that allow them to actively participate. Barrier-free Vehicles Park is a special exhibit that focuses on the themes "barrier-free," "normalization" and "universal design" as they apply to automobiles.
The booth allows visitors to see, hear, touch, experience, learn and enjoy barrier-free vehicles as something familiar and close-to-home.
