Rendering the City Accessible

Rendering the City Accessible

The way our buildings and public spaces are planned has a significant impact on our quality of life. In the latest edition of The UrbanistMonocle 24's weekly "guide to making better cities," Tom Edwards and his team explore urban accessibility and inclusivity: from how best to create and incorporate inclusive design, to a cab service in Hong Kong which has been designed especially for wheelchair passengers. They also discover what happens when technology and sound come together to create a map of the city, and why New York has introduced mental respite centres.
