LI CPD Conference: Inclusive Environments
15 Jun 2021
Day 1. 8 Maximising Inclusion in a Playful Environment
Understanding Play can help to deliver environments which support inclusion and access. This does not just mean by delivering individual elements but by considering the users as a whole and the entire space from conception to delivery. This conversation will help Landscape Architects deliver more inclusive playful spaces.
