Kamariah Dola, Farzad Pour Rahimian

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


We rely on innovative approaches to meet our needs as our social and physical environment keep on evolving. Human satisfaction has been the centre of discussions as it keeps on changing over time. It is the aspiration of all designers that success in design links closely with satisfaction. In search of fulfilling human needs, the first two papers investigate people satisfaction on guilt environment: residential and pedestrian satisfaction. The world is aging, so does the population. Different from other culture, Malaysia, particularly for Muslim community, a 'pondok' system is proposed to cater those at retirement age, as discussed in the third paper.
