dc.description.abstractThe number of people with disabling conditions is enormous and increasing each year. Yet housing which accommodates the needs of people with disabilities and useful information not between widely available. To date this information has been limited lo a few special researchers and designers who have developed an expertise in this field. Architecture is creating an environment for people and that means all "people" are not merely limited to the "able - bodied" but it is universal design for all people. A "home" for I the disabled should be a healing and personal place of living rather than a cold sterile place like a typical public institution. I believe this can be achieved through its scale, proportion, order, color, material and even symbolism and metaphor.
