  • Abstract:
    In order to meet increasing social demand for atypical buildings and spaces, architects must be able to design an atypically shaped building. However, such design outcomes and processes often ignore the central element of architecture—namely, the human factor. In this context, virtual users (VUsers) are regarded as a suitable solution to this problem. In the previous field research, we investigated users' behaviors in atypical architectural spaces and the psychological reasons of behaviors. In this study, we focused on the computerization and systematic integration of the results of the previous research in order to develop a technology that automatically creates a space where user behavior can be expressed in atypical architectural designs and where VUsers can exhibit psychologically appropriate behaviors. This study suggests how to create the appropriate trigger spots, trigger viewpoints, and behavioral areas which guide VUsers' autonomous behavior in the virtual environment. We also integrated the results of this study into ActoViz, a user-behavior simulation system. Based on this study, further research will advance ActoViz, a human behavior simulation system based on intelligent agents which can behave freely within the designed atypical architectural geometry.
