How can disciplines like environmental psychology, UX research, and behavioral science enhance urban planning processes and outcomes?
User experience (UX) research and design thinking strategies are now applied far beyond the scope of products and apps. How are these tools being used in urban planning processes, and where might planners and communities benefit from their application? With policymakers and businesses increasingly interested in applying behavioral science to enhance well-being and understand behavior, fields like environmental psychology provide a complementary tradition of UX research strategies to bring to the table.
The APA New York Metro Chapter Urban Design + Arts and Culture Committee is pleased to bring together a panel of expert practitioners working at the cutting edge of urban planning, environmental psychology, and user experience research. The group will discuss current trends, transformational design approaches, and lessons for future interdisciplinary collaboration.
