The designed environment rarely meets the diverse needs of everyone. Especially hard hit are those who deviate from the norm. The exhibition presents contemporary approaches to inclusive design and architecture; from apps, toys, and clothing to do-it-yourself projects and the design of public spaces. The focus is on five international design studios that incorporate the diversity of society in their work and make our environment more accessible.
