DISABILITY, SPACE, ARCHITECTURE: A READER. Ed. by Jos Boys. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2017. 342 pp. with 68 ills. 25 x 18 cm. LC 2016-36334 ISBN 9781138676435 In English.
Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 175480. Publisher's description: Disability, Space, Architecture: A Reader takes a groundbreaking approach to exploring the interconnections between disability, architecture and cities. The contributions come from architecture, geography, anthropology, health studies, English language and literature, rhetoric and composition, art history, disability studies and disability arts and cover personal, theoretical and innovative ideas and work. Richer approaches to disability -- beyond regulation and design guidance -- remain fragmented and difficult to find for architectural and built environment students, educators and professionals. By bringing together in one place some seminal texts and projects, as well as newly commissioned writings, readers can engage with disability in unexpected and exciting ways that can vibrantly inform their understandings of architecture and urban design. Most crucially, Disability, Space, Architecture: A Reader opens up not just disability but also ability -- dis/ability -- as a means of refusing the normalization of only particular kinds of bodies in the design of built space.
