Abstract

Architectural or Engineering design workspace is an arena where denominator activities takes place, however its adequacy has been neglected over the years. This study focused on parametric measures to ascertain design workspace adequacy of selected institutions in Nigeria. Questionnaires with multiple-choice and open-ended questions were administered to undergraduate and postgraduate architecture students of four (4) schools in south-west Nigeria. The sustainable parametric measures of adequacy that were examined include: workspace, lighting, ventilation, safety, privacy and security, building service equipment and the auxiliary facility requirements in the design studio. The outcome of the study revealed parametric indices in line with the sustainable measurements of adequacy. It highlighted other grey areas of adequacy not yet addressed. It also suggested the harmonization of design workspaces in line with tropical and universal standard. Recommendation was also given of energy the design of workspaces in other allied professions i.e civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering spaces. Keywords: workspace, architecture, design, adequacy,
