Abstract

Architects do not work in a vacuum, totally divorced from other fields. They must be part social scientists, considering how the dimensions and availability of living space will impact upon the living culture, customs and interpersonal relationships of the resident community. They must also be part psychologists, taking account of how their designs will affect the character, nature and mood of their users. The core historical theoretical and conceptual preoccupations of the study is to expand current conceptions of architectural history and theory through an exploration of the notion that architecture is in some sense co-originary with humanity itself, both emerging in the first social organizations and settlements.
