End-Users’ Sense of Home in Mass-Housing Based on Maslow’s Theory

  • S. Javad Asad Poor


"Sense of home" in mass housing depends on the degree of congruity of the environment with end-users’ different motivations, which would be achieved by their participation. End-users' participation in mass housing is quite challenging and critical because they are inaccessible and absent. This paper aims at investigating the interrelationships between end-users’ motivational factors and different participatory modes/levels. An overview of theories and concepts on human motivation and different participatory modes/levels results in explaining the degree of readability of different motivations, and the application of various participatory methods in representing these motivations.
