Excellent update of core Universal Design text
A wide ranging resource examining the Universal Design paradigm and illustrating the internationality of academic, applied and theoretical design and research activity and expertise. The reader is able to gain a good grasp of the drivers that have led to the development of Universal Design and the theoretical positioning of the subject.Was this review helpful?

Each section provides a window on the way in which Universal (Design for All/Inclusive design) has become an authoritative approach to designing, especially, thought not exclusively, in the field of the built environment.
Project descriptions and case studies allow design students, academics and researchers to explore a range of issues and approaches presented in an easily accessed form and consider these different options as ways of approaching their own work.
I would recommend this as a valuable addition to any design school library and as a good introductory resource for academics.
