This research cluster explores how spatial environments are experienced by their users. How do they affect people on a perceptual, cognitive, and emotional level? How do they interact with diverse groups of people?  A prominent topic is universal design/design for all, which encompasses research on how environments can be designed that are fitting for diverse groups with different capacities and capabilities (universal) without being stigmatizing or compromising on aesthetic quality (design).
