Abstract

Interior design studios are still too little concerned with designing for autism, instead, these issues are left to building regulations, accessibility manuals, supportive technology, or linked to the prescriptive application of guidelines. However, this approach to the design of living environments cannot suffice, since it does not take into account the multiple facets of autism in many aspects of life. In this paper, some examples will be described of design experiences of architects all over the world who have been able to mediate between the generalizations needed to build guidelines and the study of specific preferences.
