This Research Report i about the relevance of the term "universal design", in relation to architecture, and intended for Architecture supposed to death and human grief. The task checks the assumption that universal design can be a conceptual tool in relation to other knowledge that is aimed at the design subject, and thematises that the concept of equality is just as important in death as in life.

On the one hand the assignment concludes that universal design has functions as a strategic concept in different contexts, and that it can be understood as an example of how to sample knowledge from different theories. On the other hand, the research is to make visible some concrete design elements that characterize architecture that relates to grief and mortality.

Of particular importance are findings that are based on their importance in relation to different academic backgrounds.

The thesis's key findings are based on an analysis of three different architectural examples, and a subsequent discussion of the analysis in relation to a theoretical framework that deals with the issues of equality, grief, architecture and universal design.
