Environmental Design Evaluation: Epilogue

  • Arnold Friedmann

Abstract

Several pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of environmental design evaluation have now been presented; this chapter will fill in the remaining pieces. First, the direction of the field will be charted, both generally and by the use of specific cases. Second, following the conclusion that better methodology is needed, several broad issues will be presented, including both general issues of validity and summaries of techniques. However, these techniques involve some important ethical dangers; these are outlined in the fourth section. Finally, the structure-process approach will be summarized in the last section.
