Description
The International Union of Architects (UIA) has launched the second edition of the ‘Friendly and Inclusive Spaces’ Awards. The Awards recognise and promote inclusive design – from buildings and public spaces to research – and are open to all architect members of UIA member sections.
Launching the Awards on behalf of the UIA, Irish architect Fionnuala Rogerson, Co-Director of the UIA’s Architecture for All work programme, said:
“We are delighted to launch the second edition of the ‘Friendly and Inclusive Spaces’ Awards. The awards promote the idea that quality in architectural design is for everyone and that it is essential that well-designed buildings and spaces are suitable for all users regardless of their age, ability or cultural background. Friendly spaces benefit from good design that is sensitive to people’s needs with clear circulation and orientation. Our driving vision is the creation of ‘enabling’ environments through good architecture.”
