2018 / Inclusive Libraries by Design

Latest Activity: Sep 10


Simple mindfulness while considering the built environment can make the difference between a place that supports inclusion­ (e.g., diverse heights, ages, genders, mobilities, cultures, reliance on our senses) and a place that does not welcome all users. Successful building designs accommodate the greatest diversity by providing choice and the ability to customize one’s environment based on need. Foundational to creating inclusive buildings is the design process itself. Implicit biases must be overcome through open dialogue and awareness. During the programming and design phases methods of outreach, stakeholder input, and communication must be carefully considered to allow for diverse voices and inclusion.
This workshop will introduce the concept and societal benefits of inclusive design, create awareness of our own biases, and practice critique of a building design through the lens of inclusion.
