Project E : Exploring and Experimenting with Experienced Environments

Phase 1 : Theorising  |  Phase 2 : Analysing  |  Phase 3 : Experimenting

The Cross-disciplinary domain of architectural psychology theorises on the intersection between human experiences in an environment and the cognitive processes in the human mind. Behaviours and emotions are a result of these mental processes. This project divides the entire study into different areas of interest that overlap in many realms, allowing a multidimensional projection of the study.

Focus

A 3 phase study proposed over a period of a few decades spreads from theorising to analysing and experimenting with the idea of environmental and architectural psychology. A detailed study examines many aspects of design to comprehend the cross-overs with human mental processes.

Aims
  • To develop a method of computing the extent of influence of environmental factors on human perception, cognition, behaviour and emotions.

  • To identify and analyze the effects of the environment on the human psyche.

  • To Launch a book summarising and hypothesising ideologies on the basis of the project at the end of every phase.
