A Place at Work: The Working Environment of the Disabled.
Rogerson, Robert W. K. C.; Spence, Philip H.
Designed for the architect and student, the text concerns the health of the disabled as seen through the eyes of the architect. The total environment of the handicapped is the focal point of the approach. It begins with schools; then looks at medical treatment and rehabilitation as dealt with in hospitals, special rehabilitation centers, and occupational therapy units. Sheltered workshops are dealt with at length, followed by a look at factories offering open employment. Workshop design and equipment used are examined as well as the surroundings of the special buildings. Floor plans, diagrams, and photographs supplement the text, and recommendations and guides to be used by those commissioning architects are included. (CD)
