Issue026 | The Inclusive Design Issue

Read the latest issue on Inclusive Design! This issue includes twelve in-depth pieces that explore the diversity of the human experience and the importance of inclusive design as a practice and approach for nondesigners and designers. We have gathered a variety of voices to help us understand the historical and contemporary definitions of inclusive design, demonstrate practical applications and strategies around inclusive design, and offer stories of inclusive design in the built environment, work, and life. Individual+ members will receive the print copy of the magazine in January!
