The design and layout of streets and lots, houses and commercial buildings, and entire neighborhoods have historically been guided by a combination of traditional practices, aesthetics, and environmental factors. Today, a powerful new design system is emerging, a system grounded in the very latest cognitive science research on how people perceive space. This lecture will introduce relevant ideas from environmental psychology, research-based design, spatial perception, and spatial cognition.
