Microsoft promotes inclusive cities

This Microsoft video is part of a suite of films promoting inclusion and diversity in design processes. This particular video focuses on a play area. The designer, Susan M. Goltsman, talks through her thought processes. She explains that the play area design should allow for both individual and group achievements and experiences, and that we should not ignore the enjoyment of vicarious play – watching others play – if the child cannot join in physically in a particular activity. Videos such as these help companies to promote their brand as being socially aware, as well as capturing the maximum number of customers. You can access other Microsoft videos on this link.  There are versions with audio description and closed captions.
