dc.description.abstractThis thesis studies Intellectual Disability (ID), and the built environment designed for individuals with ID. It argues that this architecture must be approached strategically and holistically and should be informed by the psychology around ID. Throughout history to the present, architecture has been assigned for people with ID but has not been designed to suit the needs of the group or individual. This architecture should be informed by the psychology around ID. A common element of this psychology is adaptable behavior and by studying this, architectural elements can be translated. This design method looks at adaptive behavior and how designed space can accommodate people that are less able to adjust to their environment. This theory is tested through a recreational camp in Alberta.en_US
