Abstract The purpose of this study was to develop the evaluation system for the universal design space environment using weighted values as universal design principles for everyone. The basic principles for the universal design was drawn to equity, clarity, safety, convenience, and placement through focused group interview and arrangement of key words of precedent scholars’ theories and the enacted ordinances. Then, a one-sample t-test was conducted for the various user and experts in the relevant fields to verify the suitability of the basic principles and components used as evaluation indicators. An analysis result of the AHP(Analytic Hierarchy Process) to experts, The basic principle is that equity and safety are important, and the evaluation indicators is shown as accessibility, safe, low physical effort, intuitive cognition, simplicity, crime prevention, continuity of space, compatibility of function, and exchange and participation. Based on the above results, it suggests the need to rethink the meaning of universal design in urban architectural spaces. In order to create and spread a space where all citizens can live safely and conveniently, it presents the need for awareness education for experts as well as the participation of various users in implementing universal design policies.
