The RIBA has produced a teaching package that consists of:
The teaching package aims:
to encourage tutors in schools of architecture to teach students about the importance of this design approach;
to assist tutors to develop in their students, the values, knowledge and skills necessary to design inclusively;
to provide material that will help tutors to explain how the principles of inclusive design can be embedded into the design process by using case studies as examples;
to provide ideas and references for further study on the topic of inclusive design.
The film is intended to be a useful tool for student architects primarily, and practicing architects/designers, clients, planners and others involved in the built environment.
The film features three projects:
The Roundhouse in London, a Grade II Listed building, refurbished as a public Arts venue.
The Eden Project, in Cornwall, a well known, large-scale and complex visitor attraction.
The Willows, in Wolverhampton, a new school under construction, that will bring together the population of a primary school, a special needs school, and a community facility on one integrated site.
The role and relationship of the architects, the client, the user advisors, access consultants, and other members of the design team are examined in the film. The film provides viewers with differing practical examples of inclusive design.
