Universal Design is written primarily for architects and interior designers and offers a sensible approach to the accomodation demands of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Its focus is achieving ADA compliance through the use of "universal design", which is presented as a viable alternative to traditional design.

Universal Design offers a concise overview of the ADA, placing it in historical context, and then defines the concept of universal design through discussions of theory and practice. Loaded with case studies, this book reveals how universal design can be utilized in a wide variety of situations and settings, from office spaces to public meeting halls to the individual home.

A valuable addition to any design bookshelf, Universal Design brings creative solutions to the challenging demands of the ADA.
