Inclusive Design and Building Performance: Exploring Synergies with Equity, Sustainability, and Health in the Built Environment

Join Steven Winter Associates and Building Energy Exchange for a dynamic discussion at the intersection of inclusion, sustainability, and health and related opportunities to improve building design & performance for all.

Inclusive Design can be defined as an approach to creating environments that are accessible and usable to the greatest extent possible by all building occupants. While traditional applications of Inclusive Design are importantly centered on people with disabilities and aging populations, emerging thought leaders are evolving Inclusive Design’s application to broader issues of social and environmental justice.

This session features four experts who aim to elevate Inclusive Design as the next wave in building performance by establishing synergies with equity, sustainability, and health in the built environment. Panelists will present an overview of ongoing Inclusive Design initiatives, followed by an interactive discussion with the audience around opportunities for future interdisciplinary work.
