dc.description.abstract The purpose of this creative project was to develop suitable design tools and language of behavioral analysis which could be employed in environmental design with regard to the related human behavior. The interaction of human activity and the built environment was considered as a common ground on which a basic architectural design process could be founded. To achieve a clearer understanding of the role of integrated graphic representation of the interaction of human behavior and environment, three concerned aspects were explored. These are: Pattern of the interaction between people and the built environment, Design tool and language, and Communication in the design process. As for the first aspect, three kinds of interactions of people and environment were distinguished. For the second aspect, design language was enriched with the exploration of integrated graphic representation of architectural space and human behavior. For the third aspect, the focus of graphic communication in the traditional design process was shifted from physical form to the pattern of interrelationship of people and environment. The design of the proposed International Student Center at Ball State University was completed to demonstrate the above aspects.
