Masters Dissertation


About this module:

'Architecture - A medium to influence behaviour and mood' investigates the need for further implementation of the term 'environmental psychology' within the architect's profession. The study introduces the reader to the science of human behaviour and demonstrates current architect's understanding of atmosphere and the consequences their developments impose on its users, considering their mental and physical health.

This is achieved through a broadly selected literature review, covering background information of how people observe, relate and respond to a given environment through visual observation. This ensures the thoroughness and value of the theoretical analysis, avoiding the possibility of it becoming based on the subjective understanding of architects only.

The study concludes that architects have an understanding of the emotional connections one makes with an environment, but don't consider the impact their designs impose on one's mental wellbeing and physical health. Further research is necessary to support evidence-based design (EBD), published in journals related to architecture, to bing more awareness of the environmental psychology into the profession. To ease access to the relevant information, the established theories are presented within tables listing properties of all aspects of architectural and spatial design, aiding one in developing new projects and analysing existing ones.
