This postgraduate course explores the extensive body of environment-behaviour research and theory on people’s relationship to place. Students will gain an understanding of the range and complexity of needs of specific users in the design of public spaces in which they live, work and play. Individual perceptions of shared and personal space, universal design and social inclusion will be explored, along with considering how planning and design contribute to social and environmental sustainability in communities. Most of the ideas and concepts discussed will be relevant to all environments and all types of design but for this course the focus will be on public spaces and environments in the public domain.
