Comfort Sensing

23:30 § Leave a comment

The five senses overlap one another in perception and are not exclusive so that the study of a particular comfort conditions can not exclude the incidence of the four others. All five senses are working together in actively seeking information however the basic orienting and haptic systems are particularly relevant to the perception of the third dimension since they encompass the entire body. By placing the entire body at the centre of the perceptual experience, no other sense deals as directly with space as the hapticorienting system, engaging simultaneously feelings of temperature and movement.
There are three distinct but interrelated processes by the occupants:
  • Physiological reaction by spontaneous thermoregulation
  • Behavioural reaction by clothing, opening, shading adjustments
  • Psychological reaction by expectation of the coming environmental conditions
