Clearly articulating who is using a building—and how—can help in programming and schematic design. While it is common to think of users in aggregate as people who come into the building, objects, the city, and even the larger environment can be considered users of buildings. In this presentation, I draw on my research on museums to articulate seven user types to consider in design.
