Design without frontiers. "Design and Mobility" at Massana School.

One of the main challenges faced by design is that of reaching as many people as possible, including those who suffer from disabilities. In recent years we have witnessed a number of changes in cities, which have been visibly transformed to allow the disabled to move around more freely. As part of Design Spring the Massana School (C/ Hospital, 56, Barcelona) is devoting an exhibition to this discipline, form 22nd May onwards, called "Design and Mobility". The twenty exhibits are ideas for the continued elimination of architectural barriers on our cities.
