This book is a collection of fourth year, studio projects through a practice based design studio model at RMIT University, Industrial Design Program.
Inclusive design focuses on an approach to design that allows people to engage with the built environment in an all-encompassing way. An approach to designing products and services that strives to improve the human condition. As designers we fabricate artefacts for people, however, how often do we consider a board spectrum of the global population and, the way they go about their daily lives?
This studio aims to develop students abilities to improve solutions and break down the inherent barriers, enabling humans to participate equally, confidently and independently in their day-to-day activities.
An inclusive approach to design offers new insights, where gaps in knowlage are identified, challenging conventional wisdoms; the way people interact with artefacts in their everyday lives. We strive to discover how to develop smarter more intuitive artefacts that can improve the way we all live.
