Abstract

The aim of this study is to develop universal design by the application of engineering design theory, principles and solutions to permit in parallel use of the physical elucidations with full satisfaction on the utmost possible extent, irrespective of influential areas such as various types of buildings; open spaces and park; indoor circulation facilities and courtyard; means of communication services, pedestrian, infrastructure design and services. Universal design has essentially needed the appropriate services on the aspect of application and usages for all group of population. The key concept of this study is to develop the equal entity regardless of position; handling and virtue or importance. The results and discussion of this research covers the extensive spheres such as planning, architecture, and engineering in product design and optimization. The objectives of this research are protected the professionals integrity instead of location and economical clarity; overview the practice of key technical issues that ensure the congenial environment for disable mobility. Therefore, an important emphasizes has given on the development of Universal design include more professionals and social workers-politician and bureaucratic. People in developing countries faced diurnal uncertainty on fulfill their necessity. Disabilities may also need to overcome the obstacles from the physical environment, preventing in the participation of various activities. At this preliminary stage, this study has followed a unique methodology to complete the whole feature by aspect of library research. Observed another critical issue is effective adaptation of engineering theory and concept on the development of Universal design in developing countries.
