Preiser, Wolfgang F. E., Ed.
The items contained in this volume are summaries and critiques of 43 research papers grouped within a framework of nine general topics which represents an attempt to delineate the basic concepts and structure of environmental design research. The papers are grouped under the following headings: (1) Theoretical issues in man-environment relations, (2) visual attributes of environments, (3) human responses to the natural and man-made physical environment, (4) environmental research and design for different age groups, (5) environmental cognition, (6) quantitative techniques in environmental analysis, (7) decisionmaking tools, and (8) space planning techniques and design languages and methods. The conference papers represent a first attempt to define the concern and boundaries of environmental design research. The second volume (EA 005 489) includes the symposia and workshop papers.
