Designing for Humans: Privacy
Humans need to be able to spend time in private when they feel it’s necessary to do so. When people don’t have access to private spaces, or the cultures of their groups do not allow them to use private spaces provided, they become stressed. As their moods deteriorate their wellbeing, quality-of-life, and professional performance degrade and they become unpleasant companions. Research has established how design can promote constructive private experiences.
