Jos Boys is a Teaching Fellow in the Faculty of Arts, Design and Social Sciences at the University of Northumbria. She brings together a background in architecture with a research interest in the relationships between space and its occupation, and an involvement in many disability related projects. She is co-founder of Architecture-InsideOut (AIO) which brings together disabled artists and architects in collaborative explorations of building and urban design. The research for this book was initially funded by the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning through Design (CETLD), a partnership of the University of Brighton with the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), the Royal College of Art (RCA) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
