Wayfinding design is integral to universal design because it fosters easy comprehension and use of built entities at all scales. Successful wayfinding design allows people to (1) determine their location within a setting; (2)  determine their destination; (3) develop a plan to take them from their location to their destination; and (4) execute the plan and negotiate any required changes (Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, 2001).
