In Sync: Environmental Behavior Research and the Design of Learning Spaces

Front Cover
Society for College and University Planning, 2004 - Architecture - 145 pages
Clearly, space affects learning behavior. Yet even in this new Knowledge Age, designers go back constantly to familiar Agrarian and Industrial Age learning space models. For the past decade, SCUPer Lennie Scott-Webber has worked assiduously to comb through the latest behavioral and sociological research relating to how people interact with the built environment. She's taken what used to "sit on shelves in the ivory halls of academe" and has applied it to the physical design of interior learning spaces. Her work, shared in this elegant book with clear and over-sized diagrams and charts, establishes five different archetypal environments that support knowledge sharing. --Publisher description.
