Architectural Accessibility for the Disabled of College Campuses.
Cotler, Stephen R.; DeGraff, Alfred H.
This newly revised guide provides basic technical resource material, with the basic objectives of presenting within one publication (1) updated architectural criteria aimed at realistic accessibility, and (2) essential information necessary to provide for the needs of physically handicapped people on campuses. All criteria have been chosen in view of their accessibility for the physically handicapped as well as their acceptability by architects, administrators, and campus physical plant staff. All criteria considerations are based on findings of equipment used by and functional ranges of adult-sized persons found to commonly exist on today's college campuses. Each aspect of the building discussed contains a rationale designed to provide explanations and further information to justify the necessity of the criteria. The criteria section is intended to give the essential architectural information needed by architects and planners, and includes details, measurements, and graphics depicting architectural accessibility. Policy sections cite both suggested planning and administrative policy aimed at further accessibility that would not be appropriately included within the criteria section intended for the architect's use, but that are of administrative concern.
