Evidence-Based Design (EBD), Post-Occupancy Evaluation (POE) studies and multidisciplinary methodological approaches have been used for many years in order to provide input to architectural design based on diagnostics and reliable data. Field surveys are carried out in buildings-in-use to assess the performance of built environments and the perception, experience and behavior of its users. Whereas EBD emphasizes the importance of empirical evidence, POE pays much attention to the research process and the multi-methods used.

In recent years, and in particular due to the COVID-19 pandemic, both EBD and POE have been used separately or concomitantly to support the design and management of healthy environments. In this context, this Research Topic intends to discuss advances in concepts, methods, and limitations in both EBD and POE research that supported recent architectural design, and how these strategies and approaches can support the transition to a “new” architectural design in a post-pandemic context with or without continuous contaminations.

We invite contributors to submit articles based on theoretical and conceptual discussions, systematic literature reviews and empirical research (including case studies) regarding environments for health, work, learning, housing and other functions. Themes include, but are not limited to:
• EBD and/or POE strategies: new concepts, approaches and results;
• How EBD and/or POE approaches can help to improve the design quality;
• The role of EBD and POE in the development of design guidelines, norms and values;
• The today and future role of EBD and/or POE in the design of healthy work environments, learning environments, health care facilities, museums, urban habitats and housing.

Keywords: Indoor environment, Environment perception, Evidence-Based Design, Post-Occupancy Evaluation


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
