This volume explores the relationships between human well-being and space, and describes how to create and evaluate confined environments that optimize the health and productivity of the individuals who use them. Working with space as a protagonist rather than a container, the author discusses the ways in which we perceive space, light, and color physiologically and psychologically, and how perceptions influence behavior. This knowledge is then applied to the design of enclosed spaces, demonstrating how to create healthful and efficient environments ranging from offices and laboratories to shopping malls, and athletic facilities. Artifical light, air conditioning, simulation of natural stimuli, and automation are examined in depth, as well as underground and isolated environments. Practical design guidlines are based on extensive research on confined environments and windowless control room design. Integrating science and art with practice, this accessible volume enables architects to assess and respond to human needs in enclosed spaces. This book should be of interest to architects; interior designers; psychologists.
