Great architecture is more than just creating a building that looks good; a thoughtfully-designed environment is one that works well and offers comfort and security for everyone who uses it. Accessibility variations are often an afterthought when it comes to architecture, but great design needs to incorporate decisions that make the space functional for everyone throughout the entire design process.
The importance of light for those with visual impairments, or circulation for those with limited mobility, can impact the entire form and aesthetic of an environment, and truly accessible design takes these into consideration from day one.
