Design has always represented a human-centered approach to change and development. Over the last decade, under conditions of complexity and uncertainty, design thinking based mainly on design thinking and service design has additionally developed. However, was this sustainable change accessible to people outside of the great organizations?
Only the combination of the latest achievements in the field of high-speed production and information and communication technology has extended access to innovative design to a wider group. From hobbyists to entrepreneurs. Where did this change come from? The practice of design goes beyond the initial concepts of physical accessibility, aging and gender to take into account a broader spectrum of human characteristics, such as emotional and psychological diversity. Inclusiveness will change from physical to psychosocial, a concept that we can also explore under the concept of neuro-diversity.
Planners and professionals in urban design understand the inherent challenges of creating these kinds of spaces that enhance the well-being of communities. Especially now, COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing requirements have both increased the demand for public space and re-emphasized the importance of inclusive, multi-generational design. However, it should be remembered that designing inclusive public spaces is far from standardization. There is no one-size-fits-all design process list as each community is completely different.
