This film is intended to be a highly useful tool for student and practicing architects/designers, planners, clients and others involved in the built environment.
The role and relationship of the architects, the client, the user advisors, access consultants, and other members of the design team are examined in the film (clips 1 to 7). The film provides viewers with differing practical examples of inclusive design.
The film features three projects:
1.The Roundhouse in London, a Grade 2 Listed building, refurbished as a public Arts venue.
2.The Eden Project, in Cornwall, a well known, large-scale and complex visitor attraction.
3.And the Willows, in Wolverhampton, a new school under construction, that will bring together the population of a primary school, a special needs school, and a community facility on one integrated site.
How do we design a school environment for a local Somali population?
How do we turn a visually attractive venue such as Eden, into an enjoyable and worthwhile place for those who are visually impaired?
How do we reconcile a Grade 2 Listed Arts Venue into an accessible venue for wheelchair users, and maintain a highly fashionable and tempting place for young people?
