Behavioral economics and architectural design, integrated in paradigm-shifting ways
Workplace design solutions regularly support employee telecommuting.
The order in which assessments are made influences the resulting evaluations.
Lehmuskallio and colleagues studied the ability of photographers and photo editors to distinguish photographs from photorealistic computer-generated images when they were viewed on a screen.

Spaces and objects are developed at a point in time and exist for periods of time; their design influences our perceptions of how much time has passed. Considering time, and all its implications, is important for design success, particularly if, as Hancock suggests, designers actually create time.
Our assessments of the world around us are rarely truly objective. Whether we have design training or not, our cultures, the language that we’re speaking, our location on the planet, and our gender, for example, all influence how we perceive our physical environment. Learning more about our perceptual filters makes successful design more likely—and lot’s of research data easier to understand.
