Data & Space

in collaboration with Zining Ye, Chris Reyes, and Katie Qian

As we enter the final leg of our first year design curriculum, we were tasked to choose a space and consider opportunities for intervention and redesign. This is an opportunity to collaborate, develop our behavioral research methods and better understand people within different contexts.


The University Center third floor lounge is a shared student space where people often come to study, collaborate, and relax. It consists of consists of two main areas, the collaborative space and the graduate lounge, and has multiple entrances.

We began our documentation around 6pm on a Monday afternoon from different viewpoints within the environment to get a preliminary idea of behavioral flow.
