Environmental and behavioral studies have identified and demonstrated correlation between building design and human behavior. Office buildings are regarded as “weak” program buildings (cf. Joseph et al. 2005) as they sustain a very wide range of activities and interactions. By contrast, activities in “strong” program buildings (for instance, hospitals) are more predictable and more structured (such as around doctors’ and receptionists’ offices as well as around wards).
