– A people centred strategy for innovation

This online resource gives an introduction to understanding and practicing Inclusive Design for both designers, architects and businesses within private and public sector. 

To inspire and show how both commercial enterprises and public institutions can benefit we present easy to read best practice examples making the case on how Inclusive Design leads to innovation, profit and increased market share.

In the tools and methods section you will find techniques for a people-centred approach to engage users in any design and architectural development process. This online resource will give you take outs you can apply into your own projects based upon the book Innovating with people - Inclusive Design and architecture (2019). 

In the book you will find a more extensive content on the history of Inclusive Design, outline of benefits, and more compiled insights and knowledge from practitioners with extensive experience from various sectors.


We are always looking for feedback and best practice projects to showcase as this resource site aims to gather and share knowledge from a variety of business fields. If you have an inclusive design project you want to showcase, let us know. Or submit your case directly.
