This book examines how designers conduct research into commercial and residential spaces, providing student with background information on evidence-based design (EBD), the design process, programming, resources, and design theories. Students will learn the process of research for EBD, explore methods of data collection and the role of historic precedents in the design process. Included is an overview of data collection for commercial projects, background information and case studies on various types of design-office, hospitality, health care, retail, and others-plus an in-depth look at residential spaces. Students will find examples of surveys and questionnaires, ideas for conducting new research and tips for fact-finding and evidence in this excellent source that will energize their design and carry their projects to a higher level.
