This revives an curiosity within the experiential that was once first explored within the early twentieth century through German and Nordic natural architects, who invented layout tools that correlated cognitive responses of constructions’ occupants to spatial constitution. the present revival of human-centric layout, despite the fact that, represents the 1st layout process that synthesises spatial layout and algorithmic recommendations with natural layout pondering, that may even be considered as a go back to the ‘first ideas’ of architectural design.
