TLmag caught up with Lisa White, the curator of International Design Biennale Saint-Étienne 2019. The festival -Me, Nous, You- explores inclusive design.
A film screening and discussion about an argument that will become louder in the next generation, as universal design comes to shape our built environments and other aspects of our lives.
Universal Design (UD) is an approach to design that increases the potential for developing a better quality of life for a wide range of individuals. It is a design process that enables and empowers a diverse population by improving human performance, health and wellness, and social participation (Steinfeld and Maisel, 2012). It creates products, systems, and environments to be as usable as possible by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability or situation.
