9780470399132: Universal Design: Creating Inclusive Environments

A much-needed reference to the latest thinking in universal design

Universal Design: Creating Inclusive Environments offers a comprehensive survey of best practices and innovative solutions in universal design. Written by top thinkers at the Center for Inclusive Design and Environmental Access (IDeA), it demonstrates the difference between universal design and accessibility and identifies its relationship to sustainable design and active living. Hundreds of examples from all areas of design illustrate the practical application of this growing field. Complete, in-depth coverage includes:

· The evolution of universal design, from its roots in the disability rights movement to present-day trends

· How universal design can address the needs of an aging population without specialization or adaptation to reduce the need for expensive and hard-to-find specialized products and services

· Design practices for human performance, health and wellness, and social participation

· Strategies for urban and landscape design, housing, interior design, product design, and transportation

Destined to become the standard professional reference on the subject, Universal Design: Creating Inclusive Environments is an invaluable resource for architects, interior designers, urban planners, landscape architects, product designers, and anyone with an interest in how we access, use, and enjoy the environment.
