Predicting topographical and sociological information patterns from building access logs (2015)

Abstract Building design is not just a matter for architects, engineers and planners but also for sociologists and behavioral scientists. Once completed and occupied, buildings adopt unique mannerisms based on their design, occupancy form, organizational culture and operational systems contained within their boundaries. Architects and planners base their building layout on a set of rule-based tools which assist them in their interpretation of an organization’s needs, both normal usage and under extreme circumstances, such as emergencies or evacuations. Previous researchers such as Penn et al. [2] have examined the mechanisms by which patterns of spatial structure affect interactions within a work environment and it is these patterns and the affect on the occupants of the building, that this research wishes to explore.
