Great article and discussion to read about. Has relevance to Active Design experts and to Human Centred Design (also called accessible and universal design). My response is as follows;
“In addition to the health of the users of design and architecture we need to consider how poor design can “Dis Able” otherwise able bodied, sensed and minded people. This in turn can negatively impact the health and the safety of the building, space, design users. It is time for ID’s and Architects to sit with Human Factors/Ergonomic experts who provide all of the human centred design research from the mind to the body to the senses. Then and only then will Designers ensure designs look great and functions well at the same.
