Ron Wickman was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and in 1991 received his Master of Architecture at the Technical University of Nova Scotia. He set up his own Edmonton based practice in January 1995.
Ron's interest and expertise is in barrier-free design, that is accommodating the needs of individuals with disabilities; he also has a special interest in multi-family housing and urban and community planning. His master's thesis, titled "Beyond the Ramp" investigated issues beyond the removal of physical barriers to accessibility for persons with disabilities; it concluded that community planning, the design of individual buildings, and barrier-free design must be considered as working interdependently to create a total environment better equipped to integrate a greater number of citizens into the mainstream of society. He specializes in providing consulting services for persons with disabilities and for projects focused on affording individuals with disabilities greater choices for independent movement.
