ARTICLE

ABSTRACT

Problem statement: The paper fits the trend of Universal Design and focuses on urban space of large housing estates, which is not suitable for all users, and has structural and non-structural barriers. Methods: The author for the study of such problems has developed its own method of research, which is part of a larger Urban Audit, published in the author’s habilitation monograph. This article, due to the ability to reach a wider audience, presents this method in English. Findings and Results: The method was applied to 4 large housing estates, where a total of 356 seats were examined, and 130 were assessed in a negative way. The managers of surveyed settlements were acquainted with results and modernization proposals, which were soon implemented in their neighborhoods. Conclusions and recommendations: The main task developed by the author of the research method is to improve the quality of urban spaces of large housing estates. However, due to its universal character it can also be used for housing built today.
