    “The needs of disabled people should be celebrated by designers (some of whom have disabilities), rather than seen as merely satisfying building regulations. We need to imagine what a more joyful experience for disabled people could look like and articulate it in better architecture, product design and service design.”

    Lord Rogers of Riverside, April 2016

    “As I have travelled the world, I have had experience of how poor design standards in some hotels can affect how you feel – not only about staying but also about the whole experience. The Bespoke Access Awards are a chance to let the imagination run free and to conceive how a more inclusive design experience can help not just disabled people but every guest. The industry needs to do better but it can never just be about technical standards. Great architecture is about spaces that make you feel better and which make you want to return.”

    Paralympic gold medalist, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, April 2016
