Study: The Built Environment's Influence on Performance of Routine Activities

INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN A RESEARCH STUDY
The Built Environment's Influence on Performance of Routine Activities

A research team at the Center for Inclusive Design and Environmental
Access (IDEA) is currently conducting a federally funded study on how
the built environment influences people's ability to perform routine
activities.

The research study uses online surveys to identify activities that are
most problematic for people in three built environments: Public
Buildings, Public Streets and Residential Environments. Follow-up
surveys then evaluate how well specific architectural design features
remedy those problems.

Individuals who participate in the online surveys will be eligible for
random drawings of $100 cash prizes as well as a $500 grand prize.
Participants will also be invited to join message board discussions
where they can share ideas and talk about topics of mutual interest.
