Universal Design

Universal Design

We participated in a project on accessibility in cooperation with UTB Zlín and Design and Architecture Norway. Universal design deals with products and services accessible to the widest possible range of users.

We apply the principles of universal design in Creative Prague for a long time. Therefore, we were happy to be partners in the project with the aim of mapping the theme of accessibility and its perception in the Czech Republic.

What are the outputs?

As part of the Universal Design project, the following took place:

  • Educational trips to Norway and the Czech Republic open to students of architecture, design and related fields.
  • Discussions and workshops at the conference sections of Zlin Design Week 2022 and 2023.
  • Mapping the perception of universal design among Czech designers and architects.
  • Exhibition on principles of inclusive design at Zlin Design Week 2023.
  • Preparation of the site for promotion and long-term development of the theme of universal design in the Czech Republic.

Zlin Design Week

Zlin Design Week is a week-long festival and platform where young designers and professionals meet. ZDW offers a space for presentation, expression, sharing and unexpected connections. The festival encourages young talent and brings fresh wind in the field of design. Since 2015, it has been operating under the auspices of the Faculty of Multimedia Communications of Tomáš Bata University in Zlín thanks to the interdisciplinary collaboration of design, marketing, photography and audiovisual.

GREAT DANE

Design and Architecture Norway (DOGA) is a state institution that strives for Norway to make full use of its strengths in design and architecture. It connects people with creative talent and entrepreneurs, thereby strengthening the position of design and architecture in the development of the country. This creates solutions that enable us to face future challenges. Their projects are based on three key principles: connect, experiment and learn.
