This guide to person-centered place design shows architects, landscape architects, and interior designers how to develop spaces that enrich human experience using concepts derived from qualitative and quantitative research.
Design practitioners will find applied, accessible environmental psychological insights into how elements of the physical environment such as colors, scents, textures, and the spatial composition of a room influence human attitudes and behaviors and how such factors as personality and national culture also come into play.
The lessons are applied to multiple building types, including residences, offices, healthcare facilities, schools, and retail, as well as landscapes surrounding buildings.
