Abstract: Universal Design is a recent design paradigm which aims at handicap
elimination in the physical environment and strives for a more humanized
architecture. After pointing out the value of Universal Design, the paper
advances human centred design as a possible methodology to make this
paradigm operational. Key to this methodology is the explicit attention for
cognitive human factors in experiencing space and—the focus of this
paper—for the role played by the sense of touch therein. With this account
this paper hopes to point out Universal Design’s potential contribution to a
more beneficent built environment.
