What about Psychology of Architecture?
We, as Architects, are Designing buildings and designing towns for WHOM?
We need to learn about Human and Psychology of the people.
This Theory stablished in Bauhaus by Johannes Itten (1919-1923 in Weimar- Bauhaus),
Continuity of these Theory was done by Carl Gustav Jung.
Now about Building and Architect and Psychology
It means we learn about Psychology of Buildings & Towns
Also Learning about Psychology of people.
As the function of Buildings change The Psychology of the Building has to change. If this approach is satisfied People as end user are happy. It means the project has been designed has been successful and will be sustained and Live Logger than FASHON AND STYLE OF ITS OWN LIFE.
This theory has been with me for last 35 years, it has been unveiled.
Here it is I am going to discuss it.
According to Theory of Carl Gustave Jung,
To learn About Psychology of Human:
Human are in 4 different types of Psychology.
- Sensation type
- Feeling type
- Thinker Type
- Intuitive type
By Knowing this we learn how building become TIMELESS
We concentrate on 5 Senses
If in the space 5 Senses been considered, is white flag for SATIS FACTION.
- Natural light (the Sun)
- Greenery (trees, shrubs flowers…)
- Water (any feature represents water)
- These three create full circle of 5 Senses, Birds will come create music. And Human is fully aware of surroundings
This is joy for sensation type.
Lots of good examples which satisfy five senses
That was One BIG step for designing to Sustain the DESIGN of the building and Town Planning. This Direction meets not only Psychology of the Majority of the Society and help them to Calm Down, Help them to Relax, Be in Touch with Nature, Scientifically Helps to ventilate space, Kills The germs, Save energy in electricity, Save in Fusil energy. Most people be Happy. When They are happy, Positive Energy of People will Grow as result They will be more Creative, and amount of Crime reduce too.
WHAT IS THE STEP 2?
This type of People is interested and Attracted to History and Culture,
Feeling is all about Expressing:
We learn From Nature,
Colors in Spring,
Warm color ,
Cool & Cold Color ,
And Psychology, of the Space has to Expressing the Feeling of the Space,
Like a place of worship, it should be peaceful and Calming down,
Example of a restaurant which use materials of Break work or Fabric,
This type is interested on discovery and Symbolism.
They are looking at understand beyond the form and meaning of symbolism.
There are Buildings which have been designed to be discovered or communicating through symbolism and meaning of the form,
Some public space
Make it possible to communicate with mystery and symbolism.
Now move into Thinker Type
This type of People is interested in Rules and regulation,
Usually, if they are Architect, they work in Municipality or Government or Become Scientist to Create Rules and Formula.
Public Buildings and Town planning Psychology, which use be Used for Serious Matter Like:
Governmental Building, Such as:
Court, Municipality etc.
Entrance Must be recognized From Distance and welcoming,
Compromised by Simplicity and Direction.
That is why They put Tower for the Bel for a Church, to be announced where it is!
Or the Same for a Mosque as Minarets (Royal Mosque in Esfahan)
Or a Clock on Top of the Tower for a Government Building (UK parliament)
Hospital, mostly worried about any illness, you do not need to get Lost and add to your anxiety!!!
Schools, not to be late.
Court, worried about the case.
You can apply all of these to a Town and City, if a new person wants to entre and find the address and direction!!
Now I end to Logic and rules and regulation.
What is sustain an Architecture by Psychology? More than That, make it Time less,
What Architecture by Psychology Make a Built Environment lives for Hundreds of years, as CITY planning for Esfahan not only Sustained for many hundreds of years also become a Leader even for Modern City Planning in Tehran.
In Modern Life we as Architect Lost our connection to our experience and what learn from the past, that why a wakeup call arrived in the world of Architecture in 70s.
