What if the design process becomes a tool to help you build for those you have, recruit those you want and bridge to the community you serve? Through real life examples, program and space planning exercises, McElravv demonstrates how inclusivity can lead to impactful solutions. Imagine your ideal police station. Does it include a high-tech firearms simulation space? A brand-new fitness center? Spacious offices and comfortable break areas? These amenities are routinely requested, But what about a building that celebrates diversity and inclusivity? Or promotes equity and universal access? And strengthens community connectivity? These requests are far less common because the norm is to ask “what” instead of “why”.
