Connecting you with the University of Missouri’s innovative research and creative activity

In the 1960s, schools of architecture started teaching that their discipline wasn’t just about beauty or efficiency or design — it was about people. One of the most important innovations that emerged in that era was the field of environment and behavior studies, which holds that people’s needs dictate architectural design. When Benyamin Schwarz became a doctoral candidate at the University of Michigan, he chose the field of Environmental Gerontology, and it became his life’s work.
