Buildings fit for everyone, conscious of collectives with special necessities or disabilities – this is the sort of architecture that the Maison de l’architecture et de la Ville de Lille is showcasing in an exhibition, proving that handicap-friendly design is possible and must be present throughout the whole design process and concept development.

Through twenty-four projects, ranging from a large-scale hospital building to an almost minimal house in which the domestic environment is adapted to the owners special needs, the exhibition stated off last April 14 with a round-table lecture, and will remain open until June 20.
