Room for people with challenging behaviour

Challenging behaviour, such as aggression towards oneself, others, or objects, arises in interaction with the environment and may prevent individuals from participating in society and compromise their quality of life. Literature suggests that architects can contribute to prevention, by influencing
challenging behaviour before rather than after its occurrence. This project explores how architecture can
contribute to the quality of life of intellectually impaired (and autistic) individuals showing challenging behaviour.
