Design for All is the conception and intervention into environments, products and services which aims to ensure that anyone, including future generations, regardless of age, gender, capacities or cultural background, can participate in social, economic, cultural and leisure activities with equal opportunities.
Design for All/Universal Design should be implemented in all areas because the human beings are diverse and everyone has the wish, the need and the right of being independent and choosing the own life style without facing physical and social barriers.”
Any solution created applying Desig for All Criteria should be:
Respectful: It should respect the diversity of users. Nobody should feel marginalised and everybody should be able to access it.
Safe: It should be free of risks to all users. This means that all elements forming part of an environment have to be designed with safety in mind.
Healthy: It should not constitute a health risk or cause problems to those who suffer from certain illnesses or allergies. In addition, it should promote healthy use of spaces and products.
Functional: It should be designed in such a way that it can carry out the function for which it was intended without any problems or difficulties.
Comprehensible: All users should be able to orient themselves without difficulty within a given space, and therefore the following are essential.
Clear information: Use of icons that are common to different countries, avoiding the use of words or abbreviations from the local language which may lead to confusion.
Spatial distribution: This should be coherent and functional, avoiding disorientation and confusion.
Sustainable: Misuse of natural resources should be avoided to guarantee that future generations will have the same opportunities as us to preserve the planet.
Affordable: Anyone should have the opportunity to enjoy what is provided.
Appealing: The result should be emotional and socially acceptable but always bearing in mind the seven precedent criteria.
