Architectural programming - the analysis of any given environment
to satisfy users' needs - has become a given prerequisite to the
design process. The programming process is often a complicated one:
users' present and future needs must be identified; space
allowances, often predetermined, must be considered; equipment must
be accommodated; all in the most cost-effective way possible. The
variety of user groups is as wide as the variety of functions
architecture can shelter; moreover, the different structures and
needs of clients that fall within the same use classification
differs so greatly that every program presents a new challenge. You
cannot, for example, use the same program for every hospital you
design. In Programming the Built Environment, first published in
1985, noted architect Wolfgang F. E. Preiser has compiled a wide
range of architectural programs demonstrating applications of basic
principles for different client groups. This book will be of
interest to students of architecture and planning.
