The development of modern technology and industry in the 20th century has constructed a barrier between our everyday life and local resources such as nature, human skills, and their knowledge. Architectural Behaviorology is the practice’s architectural design method which focuses on creating better accessibility to such resources. The objective is to cultivate these resources in order to rediscover their forgotten potential through the lens of ethnographical networks and activate them by proposing an architectural design.
