The discipline “Design of Environment for Disabled People” consists of lectures and practical assignments of design projects for the Engineering Design Master Program. Lectures consider theoretical material, analyzing themes connected with the building of environment for people with disabilities; the requirements, the constitution and furnishing of urban environment, residential and public buildings, hospital rooms as well as nursing homes for people with disabilities. Present-day tendencies in this type of places as well as the methods of adapting the environment for the needs of people with disabilities are considered. Each theme is illustrated and demonstrated by the lecturer by multimedia presentation. In seminar classes, students develop three designer briefs: urban environment elements, residential environment – kitchen or living-room, and finally, a room at a nursing home for disabled people. At the end of the term, design projects are presented, discussed and submitted for final evaluation.
