Inclusion in Design
24 Apr 2023
One of the best times to influence the outcomes of the built environment is in the planning phase. At the start. When you can push ideas about with the least risk, before a cent is spent, before a single minute is wasted in construction. It seems strange, but one of the key insights emerging from applied research examining effective inclusive learning spaces is that there are key knowledge-holders not being consulted at the time of design. That those with on the ground knowledge of the impact of space, equipment, layout and everything in between, are not at the table at this critical juncture. At the point where their influence could be biggest. We have collected three influential voices to share insights and aspirations, disasters and tips for the design and use of learning spaces for inclusive education.
