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.
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.
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.
