      Abstract

      For quite some time, architects have been struggling to benefit from the vast body of environment-behaviour research to produce meaningful architecture. Written examples of such efforts are few and far between. In this context, this paper presents an attempt by a student of architecture to employ environment-behaviour research in the design of an elder’s home and discusses the potentials and problems of the approach. It shows that if theory of architecture, design practices and environment-behaviour research could be re-orientate towards and employ the idea of place as a bridging concept,it will facilitate such a link between the environment-behaviour research and design.2398-4295 © 2016.
