Accessible Housing: Quality, Disability and Design (2005)

2005 | 263 Pages | ISBN: 0415318912 | PDF | 4 MB

This book considers the interrelationships between disability and housing design with a focus on the role of policy in addressing the housing needs of disabled people. The book will set out some of the broader debates about the nature of housing, quality and design: in what ways is domestic design and architecture implicated in inhibiting or facilitating mobility and movement of people; what is the nature of government regulation and policy in relation to the design of home environments. To date there is little or no knowledge about the range of approaches to accessible design in housing nor how far policies and practices are adequate or not in creating accessible home environments. This book will go some way to address this shortfall in knowledge.
