title The Effects of Human Behavior Simulation on Architectural Design Education
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 459-468
summary Previous studies argued that human behaviour simulation is an effective analytic evaluation method to predict dynamic and complex human behaviour and social phenomena in not-yet built design solutions. However, its educational effects on architectural design have not been reported. The present study aims to investigate ways in which human behaviour simulation affects students’ feedback and design development. To achieve this, the study analysed weekly design productions, interviews and surveys collected in two experimental design courses using human behaviour simulation, held in the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. In result, the analytic experimentation and observable representation of human behaviour simulation enabled students to evaluate and develop functional operability of buildings, accounting for users’ activities and social interactions, and develop design narratives relevant to social & cultural factors. However, the complexity of establishing & coordinating virtual people’ rules hindered fluent iterations of design development. Despite its technical limitations, human behaviour simulation has significant & unique educational advantages that can facilitate quantitative & qualitative aspects of design analysis, evaluation, & dynamic feedback to the students during design processes.
keywords Human behavior simulation, architectural design education, design analysis and evaluation, social and cultural behaviors.
