Observation of human behaviours and space

New semester began, and I’m having such a wonderful time doing a large number of sketches for assignments. One of my subjects is all about urban design and how individuals experience in and respond to the surrounding space. Students were given a specific site in the university campus, where all sketches must be drawn at. The ideas behind of this subject is largely rooted in the urban design strategies by Jan Gehl, which makes assignments oriented in human relationship with space, time and environment. This approach resonate well with how I see architecture, that space should be designed based on the needs and purposes of individuals (though some degree of flexibility is also important) and for the comfort of everyone who occupy the space.
