As the baby boom generation ages, it is crucial that designers understand all they can about bringing this group, as well as all others, design that will offer function, aesthetics, and quality of life. Full of examples and illustrated with pictures of good design, Universal Design: Principles and Models details how the principles of universal design (UD) can be used to evaluate all products and places. Universal design is ubiquitous; therefore good examples are essential to understanding. This book includes more than 50 case studies that demonstrate successful applications of UD principles and helps professors develop curriculum and teaching strategies. More than 300 color photographs and drawings further illustrate the principles and best practices. The book includes topics ranging from the development of ergonomic chairs for home and office to the unique environmental concerns of those sensitive to electronic and chemical emissions. The examples illustrate a variety of user/groups in different situations and clearly demonstrate the design directives for meeting their needs. The author explores the many definitions of UD, enabling readers to identify those most meaningful to large portions of the population. Universal design (UD) facilitates the comfort and navigation of those with failing eyesight or restricted mobility, and the family members and professionals who care for them. Whether at home, work, or a public place, people appreciate the beautiful and the practical. This book takes a vital and meaningful approach, going beyond the basics and delving into details. It gets to the heart of UD and supplies an understanding of design from a greater perspective.

Winner of the 2017 IDEC Book Award, 2017 EDRA Great Places Award (Book Category), 2017 American Society of Interior Designers Joel Polsky Prize and the 2016 International Interior Design Association TXOK Research Award Designing for Autism Spectrum Disorders explains the influence of the natural and man-made environment on individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other forms of intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD). Drawing on the latest research in the fields of environmental psychology and education, the authors show you how architecture and interior spaces can positively influence individuals with neurodiversities by modifying factors such as color, lighting, space organization, textures, acoustics, and ventilation. Now you can design homes, therapeutic environments, work environments, and outdoor spaces to encourage growth and learning for the projected 500,000 children with ASD (in the United States alone) who are expected to reach adulthood by 2024. Topics discussed include: -Environmental design theories -Symptoms of ASD -Sensory processing deficits -Design needs of individuals on the spectrum at all ages -Design methods and solutions for spaces, including residential, learning, work, and therapeutic environments encompassing a wide range of budgets -Designing for self-actualization, well-being, and a high quality of life for the duration of an individual's life -Avenues for healthy living and aging in place -Biophilic design -Environmental impact on well-being -Strategies to promote active living as an integral part of the welfare focus.

Building Performance Evaluation (BPE) informs and enhances theusability and sustainability of building designs with lessonslearned from evaluation of building performance throughout thebuilding life cycle, from initial planning through occupancy toadaptive re-use. A key feature of BPE is that it examinesdesign and technical performance of buildings alongside humanperformance criteria. That is, it seeks to examine facilities inorder to determine whether they will work for the people that willuse and occupy them. Rigorous BPE helps to improve design practiceby providing feedback on the effectiveness of the choices madeabout the building to ensure that its design is optimised forstakeholders’ uses. The overarching theme for Enhancing Building Performanceis to present the next generation of BPE work. The bookprovides an updated systematic approach for BPE as well as chapterswritten by experts from around the world who demonstrate how toapply BPE to enhance building design. Topics covered include:evidence-based and integrative design processes, evaluation methodsand tools, and education and knowledge transfer. In addition,case studies provide specific examples of how BPE has been used tostudy such things as the impact of workplace design on humanproductivity and innovation. Written primarily for design professionals and facility managerswho wish to use BPE to deliver improved building performance thatis responsive to the needs of stakeholders, Enhancing BuildingPerformance will also be of great value to researchers andstudents across a range of architecture and constructiondisciplines.

Author: Decio Riccardo Carugati
For all boat lovers, this striking book describes the most important and beautiful yachts built by Sanlorenzo, the Italian company which plays a leading role in the yacht-building industry. Sanlorenzo shipyard has been building high-quality motor yachts since 1958. A boutique firm in the yachting industry renowned for its superior interior design in the nautical world, and crafting only a limited number of custom-made units per year, Sanlorenzo ranks second among the top twenty builders of yachts over twenty-four meters. The book describes twelve exclusive Sanlorenzo yacht models; each boat tells the story of a unique collaboration between constructor and designer in order to reach the perfect result, the "superlative" boat. Piero Lissoni, Rodolfo Dordoni, Antonio Citterio, and Patricia Viel are just four of the top designers involved in the creation of a Sanlorenzo yacht, a place to experience innovation that's able to withstand the test of time--and of sea. The pages of this richly illustrated book take readers on an insider's tour of marvelous boats never seen before; interior design applies to every detail, from lights to furnishings, and design features a selection of the most famous Italian brands, such as Artemide, Boffi, Edra, Minotti, offering a unique sensation of comfort and elegance.

This book takes the position that the dynamic of the architectural environment is a key aspect of good design, yet one which is not well anticipated or understood. Environmental variety is a design characteristic closely related to our experience of architecture - an architecture of the senses. Each chapter demonstrates how an understanding of a particular context or environmental characteristic in dynamic terms informs design. The book is an antidote to the misconceptions of 'optimum' environmental performance or fixed criteria, instead embracing the richness of environmental variety.

This tenth volume in the series addresses an important topic of research, de sign, and policy in the environment and behavior field. Public places and spaces include a sweeping array of settings, including urban streets, plazas and squares, malls, parks, and other locales, and natural settings such as aquatic environments, national parks and forests, and wilderness areas. The impor tance of public settings is highlighted by difficult questions of access, control, and management; unique needs and problems of different users (including women, the handicapped, and various ethnic groups); and the dramatic re shaping of our public environments that has occurred and will continue to occur in the foreseeable future. The wide-ranging scope of the topic of public places and spaces demands the attention of many disciplines and researchers, designers, managers, and policymakers. As in previous volumes in the series, the authors in the present volume come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, research and design orientations, and affiliations. They have backgrounds in or are affiliated with such fields as architecture, geography, landscape architecture, natural re sources, psychology, sociology, and urban design. Many more disciplines ob viously contribute to our understanding and design of public places and spaces, so that the contributors to this volume reflect only a sample of the possibilities and present state of knowledge about public settings.
