Taking a sensory perspective, what adds to the inclusive design agenda and values? Understanding the multi-sensory perceptions (the cross-modal correspondences) is important to the creation of healthy buildings that brings wellness and delight to the built environment.
Considering senses like sound, smell, and vision in a holistic way is essential for inclusive design because it acknowledges the diverse sensory needs and preferences of individuals. Each person has unique sensory experiences and may process sensory information differently, depending on factors such as age, gender, culture, and ability. Therefore, designing environments that only address physical accessibility may not be enough to promote inclusion and well-being.
By taking a multi-sensory approach, designers can create spaces that are not only accessible but also engaging and enriching for all individuals. This can lead to a more positive experience for users and a sense of belonging, promoting social inclusion and a greater sense of community.
The symposium comes with a series of short talks from invited speakers and an exhibition presenting the Dual-city multisensory experiences in markets in Hongkong and Birmingham- an ad-hoc to the MMHK project.
