Integrated Environmental Language
23:30 § Leave a comment
Our goal as designers is to promote specific behaviours through the interaction with our proposed idea. Therefore our brief as a designer should be to consider what physical and environmental parameters will promote these behaviours.
Behaviour is affected by the perception of our environment which in turn is a product of the balance between the environmental medium of the space. Each environmental media has an impact upon the sensorial qualities that it evokes within the occupant. Each design discipline (e.g.: acoustic, lighting, materials) has an impact upon the next. For example: acoustics are affected by the materiality chosen, which in turn are integral to how the light reflects within the environment.
