Environmental design research: how to do it and how to apply it
A how-to book offering systematic coverage of this emerging field. Defines research and design and explains how they relate. Resolves the ''applicability gap,'' which may prevent the application of valuable research to design needs, by tying the research concept into the special needs of design professionals. Includes considerable discussion of research methodology with applications to proving research value, including library, reportorial, and physical and human research aimed at improved design.
