Challenges in Designing a Rehabilitation Center – Autism

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

Seeing the increase in the number of autistic children, the need to provide the necessary space for their treatment increases. Where the purpose of such centers will be to support these individuals for a better life, but this is not as easy as it may seem, because an in-depth study of autistic people is required. Architecture is the key factor which can influence the facilitation or life of children with special abilities, enabling them to integrate through the manipulation of space and surrounding elements. The focus of this paper is to illustrate the use of seven principles - acoustics, spatial ordering, escape, separation, spaces in transition, sensory zoning, and security - as a design development tool for these individuals.
