A comprehensive resource of information for all designers who are creating spaces to be used by children, whether in the home, the school, the playground, the day-care centre, a healthcare environment, or a recreational facility. The design of any of these spaces can have a significant impact on children's cognitive and social development, so it must be undertaken with all the relevant information at hand. This volume collects together relevant design data and product information for both interior and exterior environments. It features: graphic standards for all product types; cost and square-footage data; and code and compliance information.
