ACCENT ON ACCESS.
CHATELAIN, LEON, JR.; AND OTHERS
EMPHASIS IS GIVEN ON ACCESSIBILITY TO PUBLIC BUILDINGS BY THE HANDICAPPED. ATTENTION IS DIRECTED TO THIS SUBJECT INASMUCH AS ARCHITECTS GENERALLY HAVE OVERLOOKED THE PROBLEM. HENCE, PUBLIC BUILDINGS ARE NOT TRULY AVAILABLE TO THE TOTAL PUBLIC. IN RECENT YEARS, HOWEVER, LEGISLATION HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY MORE COMMON TO CORRECT THE SITUATION. THE NATIONAL COMMISSION ON ARCHITECTURAL BARRIERS HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED TO PURSUE THE MATTER IN DEPTH. INCLUDED AMONG THEIR ACTIVITIES ARE--(1) CONDUCTING HEARINGS, (2) DEVELOPING COMMUNICATION WITH SCHOOLS OF ARCHITECTURE, (3) HOLDING CONFERENCES AND SEMINARS, AND (4) DEVELOPING MATERIALS. THE COMMISSION HAS SHOWN INTEREST IN SUCH MECHANICAL AIDS AS WALKING WHEELCHAIRS, IN INFORMATION PROGRAMS TO AROUSE THE PUBLIC, AND IN REMODELING PROJECTS. THIS DOCUMENT IS A REPRINT FROM THE REHABILITATION RECORD, NOVEMBER-DECEMBER, 1966 ISSUE, U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, EDUCATION AND WELFARE. (RH)
