Abstract: When we talk about impairment, the picture that emerges is that of people with disabilities (physical, sensory or psychological). However, disability and impairment are distinct concepts, although inextricably linked, as reflected in the models created that explain the differences between them. In contemporary society, disabled people are not the only who find difficulties integrating into society. There is a wider range of people unable to perform tasks of day-to-day, requiring appropriate environments for that. Examples are elderly, pregnant or with infants, people with limbs or vision temporarily or permanently unusable. The impairment thus results from the inadequacy of a person to his environment, and each person may experience impairment in the path of life. These are problems that inclusive design seeks to resolve, through the creation of products, spaces and technologies accessible to a wide range of people. The inclusive design aims the use and access of all people to products, buildings, outdoor spaces, transportation, communication, etc. It is governed by seven principles that guide the design and construction of such scenarios. Beyond the question of accessibility, inclusive design also allows people with sensory disabilities to experience the places, using other senses in the absence of any. The landscape architecture contributes with his knowledge in the design of public space and ecology, ensuring accessibility and availability of sensory experiences, resorting to the use of living and inert materials. Only recently the societies begun to consider issues of accessibility in urban areas, so cities today have some discontinuities in their pathways and barriers that prevent mobility in certain sections. Interventions in these areas, to make them inclusive, are more complicated, but still not impossible. In these cases, we need a preliminary study of current conditions, followed by proposals for intervention. Make these neighborhoods or cities more accessible contributes to an improved quality of spaces and the quality of life of its residents. This is why cities should evolve so to accommodate a modern society, composed of people of all ages and abilities.
