The purpose of this study is to define a space and create a documentary to explore how that space affects human behavior. We chose to focus on a building on campus that was built by a student initiative to create more spaces for casual interaction with updated spaces for napping and lounging as well as studying and eating. We interviewed both graduate and undergraduate students, as well as student government representatives, who explained to us how you would go about implementing sleeping spaces on campus. By the end of this course, we will develop a methodology which we could use to explore this topic further in order to gain both qualitative and quantitative data on general interest or opinions on the matter. The goal of this research is to understand how design affects human behavior.
Research Methodology : Survey
Location : Student Activity Center (SAC)
