Due to the increasing complexity of architectural design processes, architects often have no direct access to the perspectives of those they are designing for. Understanding future users is considered essential in design, yet also challenging. People’s experiences, motivations and needs can differ considerably. This project aims to develop design-oriented ways to inform architects about people’s experience in relation to built space. This requires information formats to move beyond traditional ways of ‘informing’, tie in with architects’ ways of working and provide design-relevant insights.
This project received funding from KU Leuven and the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO).
