Planning and Designing in Architecture: Behavioral Concerns
Prof. Sri Astuti Indriyati | Ph.D 
Abstract: Space in architecture is made to fulfill the need of people to cope with its functional, social, cultural, technical and climate anticipations. Space and Behavior relationships have been proven through various researches. Research conducted by Post Occupancy Evaluations was applied for the research assessments of Physical & Psychological Space Performance, Coping Strategies and Room Satisfactions. Most research results have confirmed the theory of human behavior impact the space and the space design impact behavior (Indriyati, 2009, 2013, 2016). One case study taken place was aimed to assess relationships between each Spatial Performances (Physical and Psychological) and further to be assesed for their impacts toward their satisfaction to the classrooms available for students and finaly assessing its impacts on student academic achievement. The results have statisticaly shown and confirmed that all hypotheses with its significances of each impacted variables. The Spatial Performance has an influenced toward the Students Satisfaction to their classrooms and its facilities provided within their classrooms, The spatial performances assesments have also shown its positive impact to student academic achievement. Based on that reason, architects by their roles, must therefore create the space which leads to the positive impact to the users instead of negative ones which will lead to the failure of architecture. Having obtained the positive impacts of the users, people will then use the space appropriately and the architects are then succeeded to further leads the users to well-behaved through the effective of space they are using. It is ensured that the results have shown the users will only need a little coping strategies to the space. To achieve appropriate space design - architecture planning and designing, concerning the behavioral items - is then required and conceptual framework produced should be innitiated by defining how perceptions of users related to coping behavior. Design methodology with concerns to the behavioral concepts is also proposed based on various studies have been done. It proceeds with data collection, programming and specification, conception, design, construction, evaluations and recommendations.
