WAYFINDING encompasses all of the ways in which people orient themselves in a physical space and navigating from place to place. The idea that the built environment can provide a means to WAYFIND suggests that architecture must be more than an iconic image. It must be enhance all of the senses in order to lead the way for those needing direction. The OOC provides a place for the Blind and visually impaired to learn about eye care as well as interact with those experiencing the same difficulties and life changes. The center concentrates the shared experiences and places where socialization can occur in a courtyard complex, reminiscent of the small villages of Bangladesh.
