RESUMÉ

MAPPING MICRO-CONTEXTS: INFORMING ARCHITECTURAL URBAN DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT 

One of the key challenges in creating liveable cities is to encourage private investment in the public good. The goal of the PhD project is to identify social sustainability indicators, consisting of quantitative data, within the context of modern workplaces and learning environments.

Based on a newly constructed university building in Cincinnati, this PhD project seeks to develop a method to measure human behavioural patterns for assessing the inherent qualities that human-oriented design can provide for building users and their daily activities. Based on a combination of quantitative and qualitative data collection methods, the desired outcome of this project is to support the early stages of the design process of future projects and provide a business case for private investors and create a voice to the public.
