Every day 48 million Americans with disabilities face man-made barriers that turn disabilities into handicaps. These barriers are as obvious as a flight of stairs or as subtle as 8-point type, all barriers that could be eliminated through Universal Design.

Access By Design explores the why and how of Universal Design and presents an inspiring collection of products, spaces, and services for virtually every area of life: home, office, school, sports, communications, travel, entertainment, computers, and recreation.

Providing the first and only comprehensive review of universal design--design that provides access to everything all of the time for all people, whether you're eight years old or 80, abled or disabled, this illuminating book set the standards for design in the 90s. Areas covered include home and office, school, print/media, sports, travel, entertainment, computers, and more.
