Product Description 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 waysÂ 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 authorÂ addresses these questions, and brings aÂ range of approaches to accessible design in housing to the forefront of debate, assessing how far policies and practices areÂ equal to the challenge ofÂ creating accessible and desirable home environments. About the Author Rob ImrieÂ is Professor of Human Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London. He is author of Disability and the City, co-author of Inclusive Design, and co-editor of British Urban Policy and Urban Renaissance: New Labour, community and urban policy.
