Psychological Interpretation of Human Behavior to Atypical Architectural Shape
The aim of this study was to investigate the psychological effects of users’ behaviors toward atypical architectural forms. The users’ behaviors were interpreted from a psychological perspective that has been studied previously and is related to visual perception, active touch, equilibrium sense, poor shape perception, ecological psychology, canonical neurons, and affordances. The results theoretically stated that the users’ different behaviors, when in atypical buildings, may have been caused by psychological actions. The ultimate purpose of this study was to develop a computerized tool to perform user simulations in the atypical architectural design process. The results of this study can be used as theoretical knowledge for developing advanced intelligence of the agent.
