Placemaking Network Spring Series: The Researchers

The Researchers: William ‘Holly’ Whyte, Jan Gehl, Kevin Lynch

These writers focus primarily on the USE of public open space, analyzing both human perception and human behavior. They’ve conducted real architectural research, setting up cameras to record how people behave in different spaces, creating experiments to test people’s spatial orientation, distributing questionnaires to understand their emotional reactions, and compiling diagrams of their movements. The research is a treasure trove of information.
