Architecture for All

What we do

The UIA Architecture for All [AfA] Work Programme raises awareness of the architect’s responsibility to ensure that accessibility and inclusive design are essential components of architectural design, construction and education. The programme promotes good practice in accessible and inclusive urban design and architecture.

 

How we do it

  • compiles and disseminates best practice case studies.
  • participates in the development of international standards and guidelines.
  • provides experienced jury members for competitions and awards.
  • organises and participates in conferences and seminars
  • advises governmental and non-governmental organisations on matters relating to accessibility of the built environment.
