Description

The central idea behind this book is to gather knowledge and experiences about strategies and processes that are based on Universal Design philosophy and principles from three different fields: architecture, product design and from within information and communication technologies (ICT). The contents of this book examine a key question: what is meant by a Universal Design strategy and how can these approaches be developed, understood and practised within the different design disciplines. To examine this question, architects, educators, researchers, product designers, those working in professional design organisations and researchers from ICT were invited to reflect on their own thoughts and practices and to write about the design processes and principles they use to create Universal Design solutions. The book is aimed at a variety of audiences typically including postgraduate students in design and architecture, designers, architects, engineers and business leaders or managers who are working with Universal Design in some way.
