L'espace public au défi de l'accessibilité

Abstract : By definition everyone can use public spaces, so we all can meet each other there. Breathing spaces and flowing spaces structure and organize the city. Due to their diversity of shapes, compositions and uses, public spaces offer many opportunities to the pedestrian who is a privileged user. Indeed, he is the only one who is able to go in every public spaces. However, accessibility may be limited by the presence of obstacles that compromise its mobility in space and its perception thereof. People with disabilities are particularly affected by the accessibility difficulties caused by the arrangement of public spaces. Today the law evolves to erase handicap situations that can meet all the pedestrians in their daily testing. A better understanding and consideration of the specifics related to disability could help to improve the quality of access to public spaces that benefit the entire population.
