Miljöperception och upplevelse

The course deals with principles of how the environment and its components are perceived and experienced. What sensations do we experience while moving through a landscape? How do we interpret them and how do they affect the way we approach the environment and adapt to it? The course introduces and elaborates on fundamental principles on human perception and appraisal of the environment, and deals with the perception and experience of textural and structural patterns, affordances, soundscapes and other fundamental properties of the outdoor environment. Theoretical studies are combined with practical exercises.
