title Orientation Strategies within Public Spaces as the Rudiments of Space Usage and Layout” – A Workshop Contribution
source Environmental Simulation - New Impulses in Planning Processes [Proceedings of the 5th European Architectural Endoscopy Association Conference / ISBN 3-922602-85-1]
summary Our guiding questions in research are: - how does one orient oneself in an unknown urban space, - are there typical strategies in orientation, which become visible during the search process and finally:- do men and women orientate in the same unknown urban space in the same way or are there hints that they are following different strategies?Our long-term theme in research is to find out the regularity and the rules of the processes of moving and using public spaces. In the first step we are trying to find out in which way the individual perception of urban spaces in moving depends on the design of urban spaces. Therefore in our research design we try to explore the qualities of urban spaces which become visible in moving processes. It is one of the oldest questions of urban design and – by the way – nearly every architect or planner pretends to know everything on this subject. But nobody is yet able to predict real moving or using processes while designing. On the other side: the parameters of the material frame work are well known while moving and using processes are still nearly unknown.

title Process of Perception –A Guiding Line to Moving in a Real Street
source Spatial Simulation and Evaluation - New Tools in Architectural and Urban Design [Proceedings of the 6th European Architectural Endoscopy Association Conference / ISBN 80-227-2088-7], pp. 11-15
summary By a special research design we try to find out in which way subjective perception influences the processes of orientation and moving. Our research design compares an objectified process of orientation and moving of several persons in two real streets – which were unknown to them – with the subjectively differentiated strategies and guiding results of personal perception. By comparing the lines of moving, the strategies of perception to the more subjective results we gained hints on the criteria and the influences of the modes of perception on one side and the influences of the material design of the real street on the other side, on the individual processes of orientation and moving. As last we tried to give some general guidance for future research.
