"Iwork as a researcher in the Department of Environmental Design at the School of Architecture in Stockholm, which I represent at the conference board, butl am also a practising architect. Because of my double occupation I am specially intrigued by the questions, which I find in the theme for today, "APPLIED RESEARCH IN THE FIELD OF ARCHITECTURAL PSYCHOLOGY". How do we use the research results, how can they be utilized in actual planning of buildings and towns? Have results produced up to this date been used by practitioners? Are the findings known? Of what practical value are they? Are they of any value at all or do they only represent work for work's sake, research for the sake of research, another i'art pour l'art?"
