Universal Design 2014, Lund, Sweden

Rob Imrie and Kim Kullman attended the Universal Design Conference in Lund and presented the paper, ‘Mediating bodies: universal design methodology and post-phenomenology’. We also developed a live installation over the three days of the event, by asking the 250 delegates to draw their UD networks on a world map. The exercise was entitled ‘Mapping the local and global networks of Universal Design’ and asked delegates ‘Who are the people that inform your practice, which professional groups do you belong to, what organisations are you connected with, and where in the world do these links transport you? These ties matter, because they transport the attitudes, information and objects that shape communities of practitioners and mobilise Universal Design around the world today’.
