Welcome to Breaking down Barriers


Our ‘Breaking down Barriers’ cross-disciplinary team is committed to embedding inclusivity within curricula of built environment professional education (BEPE), graphic communication and beyond.

We’re enhancing student experience and employability through:

  • Developing a cross-disciplinary expert knowledge base
  • Prioritising experiential learning with a strong user focus
  • Engaging with real-world scenarios and external organisations

Our focus is on the inclusion of disabled people and, specifically, on inclusive environments.

Our team combines expertise from the School of the Built Environment, the Henley Business School, and the School of Art and Communication Design. Our core members are: Christina Duckett, Geoff Cook, Joe Doak, Jeanne-Louise Moys, and Suha Jaradat. The breadth and depth of expertise on which the project draws allow our students to benefit from a wide range of influences with real-world application to the design and management of buildings and places and information design.

We’re excited about sharing our practice with you on this blog.
