By re-contextualizing the history of architecture through the discourse of disability, David Gissen's recent book The Architecture of Disability Buildings, Cities, and Landscapes beyond Access (University of Minnesota Press, 2022) presents a unique challenge to current modes of architectural practice, theory, and education. Envisioning architecture that fully integrates disabled persons into its production, it advocates for looking beyond traditional notions of accessibility and shows how certain incapacities can help to positively reimagine the roots of architecture.
