We spend our lives within public and private buildings and our daily activities depend more and more on the possibilities that these environments offer us.
The environment influences our experiences and has an impact on our physical and mental health. One of the major challenges of architects today is to offer spaces that respond to all people’s needs, regardless of differences in physical, sensory, mental and social abilities. This will bring to more usable, livable and healthy buildings for everyone.
