It has been rightly pointed out by Psomopoulos that, “Many urban plans cater to a fictitious model of the human being—exclusively for a man (not a woman) in the prime of life, and at the peak of his physical fitness”. To put this differently, most of the cities have been designed for young individuals who have an ideal physique that few humans can ever hope to have.
Movement is a basic human right, and urban areas are expected to be designed and well equipped for all. Appropriate designing of cities does not only impact movement of people but also their access to infrastructural amenities.
