The 48 Hours Inclusive Design Challenge
It's 17 days to my another important days of my life for this year : The 48 Hours Inclusive Design Challenge!!!
The competition will be held in Korea from 11-14 October 2009, sposored by British Council.
Now I'm a bit worry, becuz inclusive design indeed is not a simple thing to do. But it's not me if I dont take it as a challenge. I love to do this kind of things, makes me push myself to the limits. Makes me realize that I can do better each time.
If you all wondering what's "inclusive design", I put some definition about it.
Inclusive design is neither a new genre of design, nor a sepeate specialisme in design. It is a general approach to designing in which designers ensure that their products and services address the needs of the widest possible audience, irrespective of age or ability. Also known as Design For All. Or in USA it's more common with Universal Design.
Inclusive design indeed very important to achieve by all sector of designers. As for my field of design : Architecture&Interior Design, Inclusive design will be the most valuable factor in the design product itself. As it will make my design become "timeless", can be used by anyone with any capabilities and any ages. This will be my best achievement in my life that I always want to have. So, this challenge is really important for me.
I remembered last time in my university time, as my favourite lecturer told us about the timeless building. How important it is. At that time, I wasn't really aware of it, until I really jumped into the reality of designing space for people. It's amazing to know that your design is aplicable for anyone in the whole world in any condition and situation.
I can't wait to really put in all my efforts for this valuable experiences of my life.
Wish me luck guys, this will be very tough!!
