title The Anthropometric Measurement and Modeling Project
source Eternity, Infinity and Virtuality in Architecture [Proceedings of the 22nd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Design in Architecture / 1-880250-09-8] Washington D.C. 19-22 October 2000, pp. 281-284
summary Disability is a product of the interactions between individuals and the environment they inhabit and the products they utilize. Disability is located on a continuum from enablement to disablement. Human physical characteristics as well as environmental factors will locate an individual on that continuum. The degree of disability or enablement will fluctuate, depending upon the attributes of the environment and the artifacts located there. The ability of designers and architects to create environments and products that enable all people is directly tied to their ability to: 1. understand the abilities and constraints of the human body and, 2. model the physics of the body’s interactions with artifacts and spaces. // This project is developing an anthropometric measurement protocol and computer-based design tools focusing on people with disabilities and the aging. The areas of interest for measurement are guided by real-world design needs. The measurements generated are translated into three-dimensional datasets compatible with commercial off the shelf software extended by the programming of additional scripts, functions, plug-ins, behaviors, etc.
