? Jane Langmiur, Architect

"Universal design is good design because it is design for the user and not design for the designer."
? Marc Harrison, IDSA, Professor, Rhode Island School of Design

"The issue is not so much, ?what a great idea!,? as how did we get it wrong for so long?"
? Geoff Hollington, Universal Designer, Geoff Hollington Associates

"It?s a way of thinking; a new ingredient to design education and professional practice that can become a catalyst for invigorating our design sensibilities."
? Bill Palmer, Architect, Hellmuth, Obata, & Kassabaum, Inc.

"A designed object, product, building, or landscape earns the term Universal Design only if, in its final built state, it works properly in one form for everyone."
? Kevin Owens, Director of Product Development for Play/Designs & Playworld Systems
