Universal Design” Designing for Social Sustainability by Chris Lanterman-NAU “Universal design…is an orientation to any design process that begins with a responsibility to the experience of the user” (Institute for Human-Centered Design, 2011). Designing residential, public, and commercial facilities that are responsive to the range of potential users, including children, older adults, individuals with disabilities, and visitors from other lands, adds to the social sustainability of a community.
