Designing for the 21st Century

Author: Christophersen, J.
Type: Conference Paper
Year: 2004


The paper presents a new publication from two central government institutions in Norway. The relevance in an international setting is how to address architects and planners in a way they will find interesting and inspiring. The publication sets out to do this in a novel manner, putting the main emphasis on the integration of accessibility and Universal Design into the architecture, using 3D sketches and diagrams in combination with photographs to illustrate the relationships between the whole, the individual parts and the architectural detailing of buildings. Political and social aims of integration and inclusion are given as an outline.
