Abstract: Through a case study of Hong Kong, the paper presents how the Inclusive Design Cube (IDC) can be referenced to develop and evaluate inclusive play space in practice. While social activities take place frequently in play space, the paper advocates that it is essential to include social aspect in public design. Consequently, based on the IDC, the paper develops a model of Socially Inclusive Design Cube (SIDC) to investigate and identify the relationship among social, motion, cognitive and sensory capabilities in the context of play space. Through the development of the SIDC model, the paper raises a question about inclusive design approach. It is hoped that the further development and the application of the SIDC model will contribute to the discipline of inclusive design with social concerns.
