Universal design is architectural design that attempts to make buildings and environments as inclusive as possible. Whether you use a seeing-eye dog or wheelchair, have to ask the way in sign language or are dragging along a buggy or folding bike, your destination has to be reachable and accessible.
The KU Leuven magazine Sonar published an interview with Prof.dr. Arch. Marc Dujardin. He is one of the pioneers of universal design in Belgium. The article ‘Architecture that transcends boundaries’ can be read on the site of KU Leuven stories.
