Enhancing the Quality of Spatial Design for Persons with Autism | Status: In Progress

Universal Design is not enough to address the needs of persons with disabilities. A lack in knowledge and understanding the needs of persons with disabilities, as well as their user experience of a space, inhibits designers or anyone creating a space for a person with disabilities from designing that space well.

Empathy Box is a design research that aims to enhance the quality of spatial design for persons with disabilities, by deepening our capacity to design well for a more inclusive Singapore.

 

This is manifested through Empathy Box #1: Designing for Persons with Autism. Empathy Box #1 is an inclusive design toolkit set containing a compilation of different prototypes that will be conceptualized and developed with stakeholders, to empower designers to adapt and personalize designs for persons with autism through an empathetic design journey.
