Human Movement and Preference.
Bechtel, Robert B.
Why and how architecture and interior design can stimulate exploratory locomotion is discussed in terms of research and testing into human response. Two kinds of locomotion are defined, exploratory and habitual, with regard to locomotion and behavior responses to the architectural environment. Measuring responses with a hodometer is outlined with a case study experiment and testing procedure. An evaluation is given with suggestions for further research. A reference list is included. (TG)
