Inclusivity – A Big Challenge For Architects And The Built Environment

Step-free access and wheelchair ramps are important but far from enough to ensure a truly inclusive built environment. Different types of disability as well as cultural, racial, and socio-economic differences all contribute to making inclusivity a tough nut to crack when developing cities and communities. How should architects think about and respond to the manifold challenges of inclusivity?

This session is a keynote dialogue moderated by our Master of Ceremonies Connie Hedegaard. Our keynote dialogues are designed as a series of dialogues between trailblazing architects and experts from science, business and politics. All keynote dialogues will be moderated by Connie Hedegaard.
