This paper constructs a framework for understanding how notions of disability influence the discourse on accessibility and Universal Design as well as the present understanding of the user role in Denmark. Implications are that the understanding of disability and design of architecture are not mutually opposed to one another. Instead they are closely interwoven in the fabric of designing for diversity. Through the perspectives of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, Disabled People's Organisations Denmark and the practicing Architects, the paper discusses
three notions of disability. Initial findings of the PhD research project “Generating
Inclusive Built Environments through User Driven Dialogue in the Architectural Design
Process” along with qualitative research conducted at the Danish Building Research
Institute frame former and current thinking, and discusses the scope of reviewing impairment as a condition of human variety in the architectural design process.
