Assessing the Learning Value of Campus Open Spaces Through Post-Occupancy Evaluations.

Web Abstract: 
Uses the University of Georgia's Memorial Garden as a case study to examine how the composition and configuration of campus landscape elements affect behavior. The research examines how specific landscape elements did allow certain types of both individual and group studying behaviors, and that the overall arrangement of these elements either supported or limited these activities. This study also demonstrates that a post-occupancy evaluation can be a useful assessment tool that allows both designers and administration officials to determine the outcomes of built projects on an academic campus. Includes 22 references.
