One of a series of ten courses about the reasons to conduct and methods to accomplish effective predesign planning in architecture, this is the third of five courses focusing on methods used in predesign planning. This course covers the techniques and tools required to conduct successful diagnostic observations of people, places, objects, and their interactions to uncover how the environment influences human behavior. The differences with diagnostic interviewing are covered and the need to develop understanding, not just description, is emphasized. Several types of observation and observation formats, including photographic documentation, are included. Exercises and references allow the reader to develop knowledge and skills in diagnostic observation. Each part of this ten-part series can be taken as an individual course.
Convenient. Flexible. Affordable.
The Continuum Education Series is one of the most cost-effective ways for architects to fulfill their state and AIA continuing education requirements.
