Inclusive design

Inclusive design is not just a tool to create highly usable spaces. It is not only a methodology that ensures that everybody can enjoy environments, products and services equally, regardless of their abilities.

Inclusive design is an attitude that assumes human diversity and complexity on our ecosystem. It is an attitude that aims to empower human environments so that anything happening on them enables the maximum range of experiences posible. In one word: placemaking, co-creation of quality public spaces that contribute to people’s health, happiness, and social interaction, enabling everybody to freely enjoy public life.
