Liu Fang, Zhu Yanmei, Li Shuyang, Ni Zhenyu
Both practice and research of accessible design in China are still in the initial stage, while the regulations and standardization of accessibility is taking shape. Under the framework of engineering standards based on instrumental rationality, to present the core value of humanism and to define the limitations of universal design in the standards are the key issues worth discussing continuously. By comparing the standards of China and abroad, this paper attempts to clarify the approaches for compiling the Accessibility Design Standards for Shenzhen. At the same time, it provides materials for discussion by showing the difficulties and assumptions during the compilation.
