Inclusive Design empowers the people who use products, buildings and communities by taking their perspective and making it the central focus of the design process. Rooted in a critique of designer-centric practice and embracing an ethic of social responsibility, this new paradigm focuses on developing form from function to increase the usefulness and responsiveness of our physical world for a diverse range of people. Students selected a group of individuals currently excluded from the environment and prepared a literature review. Students then conducted a focused interview with a person currently excluded from the environment. Based on the interview, students identified a design need and developed a preliminary schematic plan and/or design proposal.
