Since the beginning of the 20th century, architecture went through several different devel:)pments. Throughout these developments a large number of movements and design models E!merged, based on different design knowledge. The motivation for design projects is related Mainly to historical, functional, or site related issues. Today's changes in social relationships and therefore living arrangements question the validity of existing traditional design soluLions, especially in the case of disabled clients. A new or modified specific design knowledge base has to be considered in order to meet the specific client's needs. To satisfy the wide range of changing nontraditional criteria that face todays architechts, the new design procedure has to result in a simple yet flexible model. This thesis proposes one such solution as it is applied to Alzheimer's disease patients and their caregivers.
