07 Jan Architecture and Mind RFG Discussion
IHC Research Seminar Room, 6056 HSSB
Thursday, January 7, 2016 / 5:00 PM
The January 2016 meeting of the Architecture and Mind RFG focuses on spatial orientation and wayfinding strategies humans employ when encountering or traversing different types of spaces. We will discuss issues and problems arising from various kinds of architectural designs and how design can ease or hinder spatial orientation.
Participants will read (in advance) and discuss the texts Looking at the Built Environment (R. Passini, 1992), Getting Lost in Buildings (L. A. Carlson, and Holscher, C., Shipley, T. F., & Dalton, R. C. , 2010), and at Space Syntax: A Brief Introduction to its Logic and Analytical Techniques (S. Bafna, 2003). For access to the readings, please email one of the RFG conveners, listed on this page.
