Description

As part of the PocketArchitecture Series, this volume focuses on inclusive design and its allied fields-ergonomics, accessibility, and participatory design. This book aims for the direct application of inclusive design concepts and technical information into architectural and interior design practices, construction, facilities management, and property development. A central goal is to illustrate the aesthetic, experiential, qualitative, and economic consequences of design decisions and methods. The book is intended to be a `first-source' reference-at the desk or in the field-for design professionals, contractors and builders, developers, and building owners.
