"Good access is more than compliance. It is about planning and managing the symbiotic relationship between a person and the life cycle of the built environment."
"Accessibility is that one brick that forms part of the structural support of any building design and its intended use. "
"Accessibility is part of good design and promotes health and wellbeing. Thinking about access early in the design process will help ensure the environments we build are designed for people: in an integrated, inclusive and imaginative way."
"Equal access = inclusion = respect = dignity."
"A future that is accessible for all starts with decisions made today."
"Accessibility is more than just providing ramps and handrails out of legality/necessity. Rather it is about giving individuals a voice for equity and dignity in a commodified society. "
"The biggest influence on the required shift towards inclusive design is driven by awareness and attitude."
JOHN LA SCALA
"Access is universal, not just for people with disabilities "
"Universal Accessibility is an individual’s right.
Equality for All."
"A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in. "
"Accessibility guarantees no one is left behind and that every person’s needs are accounted for, by ensuring a safe and fair environment for all. "
