THE TAKEAWAY

“Universal design is an important tool – it’s really about the context of our lives. What we do, those of us who design, are designing a context for life. Design is a social art. It is always about people. Part of what we are always talking about is the ordinariness of difference among we humans. What can design do?”said Valerie Fletcher.
