Description

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 ways 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 author addresses these questions, and brings a range of approaches to accessible design in housing to the forefront of debate, assessing how far policies and practices are equal to the challenge of creating accessible and desirable home environments. About the Author Rob Imrie 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.
