Universal DesignHave all of you that you came enjoy
Universal design means “design for everyone,” as the word “universal” means general and comprehensive, referring to the idea of initially designing things which are available for as many people as possible regardless of age and ability/disability.
This term and its concept were established by Ronald L. Mace at the North Carolina State University (US), and 7 principles were proposed.
The 7 Principles of Universal Design
- It is available to everyone (equitable use).
- It can be used flexibly (flexibility in use).
- It can be readily used (simple and intuitive use).
- A user can easily understand the necessary information (perceptible information).
- Any mistake leads to no serious consequence (tolerance for error)
- It can be used efficiently and easily with a small amount of power (low physical effort).
- An appropriate space is available in use (size and space for approach and use).
