“Design for all” is a concept, which is about ensuring that environments, products and services work for both people without disabilities and for people with disabilities, also for children, for the elderly, immigrants and for people of all ages and abilities in different situations and under various circumstances. Marjo Maenpaa, Professor of the School of Arts, Design and Architecture in the Aalto University presented Finnish experience in adapting public spaces and cultural facilities to the needs of various groups that include not only people with disabilities, but also elderly people, pregnant women, children, migrants and homeless people.

In November, December, 2012 Marjo Maenpaa will conduct master-classes for St. Petersburg students that should result in design projects to be developed in three cultural institutions: St. Petersburg: Museum of Theater an Musical Art and Sheremetyev Palace; Alvar Aalto Central City-Library in Vyborg; and Karelian State Philharmonics in Petrozavodsk.
