Ein ≠ Alle
What responsibilities do designers have to face and is there a connection between design and exclusion? How are barriers defined and what needs to be considered in order to create anti-discriminatory and inclusive design solutions?
Many people experience exclusion as a result of design processes. Barriers as a consequence of design arise mainly from designers’ lack of knowledge. In order to close those educational gaps, this book focuses on the principles of inclusive design.
This masterthesis provides an overview of designers' responsibilities as well as keywords and concepts relevant for inclusion and anti-discrimination. Besides that a summary of legal regulations and strategies for achieving inclusion can be found. A guideline specifies the requirements of barrier-free design and illustrates how the implementation works in design processes. Interviews with experts display how inclusion can be realized. This book also visualizes how barrier-free design can pursue an inclusive as well as an aesthetic approach.
