By focusing on questions of social justice, Gathorne-Hardy explores the processes involved in what she calls ‘accommodating difference’. By presenting a case study of a housing project which designs and builds affordable housing for people with physical impairments, this chapter highlights the difficulties encountered in collaborative partnerships between individual households and ‘progressive’ community housing agencies. The author frames these empirical details with a discussion of the ‘politics of difference’ in relation to public policy, financial and institutional contexts.
Tschumi (1996: 123), in reinforcing Le Corbusier’s observation on the interrelations between buildings and users, notes: the human body has always been suspect in architecture: it has always set limits to the most extreme architectural ambitions. The body disturbs the purity of architectural order. It is equivalent to a dangerous prohibition… architecture, then, is only an organism engaged in constant intercourse with users, whose bodies rush against the carefully established rules of architectural thought.
