Über diesen Titel


A guidebook to architectural design for accessibility, this book is heavily illustrated to convey both individual details as well as the overall design of spaces and how they work or don't work for disabled users. The case study format presents numerous built projects arranged according to building types including houses, schools, churches, theaters, stadiums and offices and describes how they have fared in real life.

From Library Journal:

Lebovich, an architectural historian and photographer, has fashioned a book of extraordinary import and beauty on the design aesthetics of inclusion. Taking as his impetus the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which mandated the removal of access barriers to, and accommodation of, handicapped individuals in public spaces, he discusses and demonstrates the possibility and elegance of accommodation. Profusely illustrated to highlight the design feature, his book shows private homes, schools, museums, hospitals, public areas, and government buildings. It is both a book of ideas and a demonstration of the thought processes of the featured architects. Sen. Robert J. Dole (R-Kan.) provides a foreword, detailing the affirmation that "universal design" not only includes disabled individuals but improves the quality of life for all. A list of information sources, architects, and designers is included. Highly recommended for design and architecture collections.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
