Core Webinar - Best of Core Forum: Designing for Human Behavior

CHICAGO–Core hosts the free webinar "Best of Core Forum: Designing for Human Behavior" on January 17, 2024, at 1 p.m. CT. This webinar discusses the different behavior and work patterns we have observed over our 30+ years of designing for public spaces as well as some of the best solutions for addressing those patterns. Designing for human behavior looks at the odd behaviors we humans exhibit when we are around unfamiliar people and in a strange place. The limbic system in our brains plays a strong role in the idiosyncratic and repetitive behavior patterns we see in public spaces. To maximize the effectiveness of public spaces and achieve the desired function, we must design with these behavioral patterns in mind.

This webinar was previously presented in-person as a session at the 2023 Core Forum. We are hosting this webinar, with the session adapted and presented live as a virtual event, to extend its reach.

Special thanks to Agati Furniture for sponsoring this webinar.
