Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Planning.
Wheeler, Lawrence; Miller, Ewing
This paper discusses the working principles that have grown out of the experiences of an architect and a psychologist working together as a planning team. According to the author, the true problem in planning and design is the prediction of behavior. Therefore, although the basic problems should be handled by the designer, a psychologist can employ his specific tools to advance the goals of a planning or design group. For example, a psychologist can make quantified measurements of behavior for programing functional requirements; utilize experimental techniques in evaluating particular design variables; and construct surveys, case studies, and similar measurements for the validation of planning criteria.
