Quality, Disability and DesignBook - 2006
Considering the interrelationships between disability and housing design with a focus on the role of policy in addressing the housing needs of disabled people, this book sets out some of the broader debates about the nature of housing, quality and design. In what waysnbsp;are 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? The authornbsp;addresses these questions, and brings anbsp;range of approaches to accessible design in housing to the forefront of debate, assessing how far policies and practices arenbsp;equal to the challenge ofnbsp;creating accessible and desirable home environments.
