Xinos Normals imageGeorge Xinos continues his UD theme in this article in Sourceable. He gives a potted history of UD, lists the seven principles and then argues, as do many, that the building industry has chosen to interpret UD as compliance with accessibility regulations and not taken up the design challenge of inclusion in a broader sense. The image chosen in this article is from the video published by the Centre for Excellence in Universal Design in Ireland, called “Meet The Normals – Adventures in Universal Design“.
