The article presents information about Florida's Design Charrette for Miniature Golf Courses. In the Florida charrette, teams of architects were tasked to produce an accessible 18-hole miniature-golf course design in a five-hour time frame. The state standards and guidelines will use the resultant designs as conceptual models. For the charrette, Paralyzed Veterans of America's architecture director was teamed with an experienced architect from Ibarra Collaborative International.
