Ed Roberts Campus—Building Community

Ed Roberts CampusArchitecture by Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects

The Ed Roberts Campus is the first building of its kind in the nation—a non-profit community center serving and celebrating the Independent Living / Disabled Rights Movement. Located at a regional public transit hub in Berkeley, California and integrating advanced strategies of Universal Design and Sustainable Design, the project welcomes and supports people of all abilities.

Commemorating the life and work of Edward V. Roberts, an early leader in the independent living movement of persons with disabilities, it has become the foremost disability rights service, advocacy, education, training, and policy center in the world.
