Advances in Environment, Behavior, and Design

Vendor: Springer


Volume 3
This third volume in Advances in Environment, Behavior, and Design fol� lows the conceptual framework adopted in the previous two volumes (see the Preface to Volume 1, 1987). It is organized into five sections� advances in theory, advances in place, user group, and sociobehavioral research, and advances in research utilization. The authors of this volume represent a wide spectrum of the multi� disciplinary environment-behavior and design field including architec� ture, environmental psychology, facility management, geography, human factors, sociology, and urban design. The volume offers interna� tional perspectives from North America (Carole Despres from Canada, several authors from the U.S.), Europe (Martin Krampen from Germany, Martin Symes from England), and New Zealand (David Kernohan). More so than any of the previous volumes, they are drawn from both academia and professional practice. While there continues to be a continuity in format in the series, we are actively exploring new directions that are on the cutting edges of the field and bode well for a more integrated future. This volume will fur� ther develop the themes of design and professional practice to comple� ment the earlier emphases on theory, research, and methods.
