Types of User Building Evaluation

Jan 01, 1973

The aim of this paper is to outline an approach to user building evaluation which is grounded in the notion of diversity of user needs rather than a mythical average user. It is suggested that user evaluations may be sorted into types via cluster analysis, and that the members of these different types of evaluation profiles may seize on different features of a building in making their evaluation. Several implications for building design and user evaluation generally emerge from this approach.
