Construction and Design Manual: Accessibility and Wayfinding (ed. Philipp Meuser; DOM Publisher, 2019) is a detailed guide to accessibility design and orientation systems in public buildings and culture, transport, education and health facilities.
Accessible architecture is about much more than wide doorways and low-placed light switches. Accessibility means independent and self-determined living and mobility for people of all ages and in any situation in life. Achieving this requires a clear awareness of the related concepts and principles, which need to be adopted into the planning process at an early stage.
This manual presents both accessibility design for public buildings and orientation systems for culture, transport, and education, as well as examples from the world of work and health. Informative essays provide an insight into the theory of signage, while selected projects are described from the perspective of Design for All.
