- Part 1: Physical activity and disease: theory and practice sets out to demonstrate the relation between physical activity and the promotion of health. This includes presentation of the health-related approach associated with the increasingly sedentary lifestyles across the worldwide populations. It also describes how scientific research demonstrates the value of exploring the design for office site mobility -- Part 2: Space-use and the history of the office building represents an overview of the history of office architectural design from ancient to present times. Along with recent concepts, theories, and practice, it also introduces ideas on how the workplace is currently changing and how it further develops to respond to the current trends in office working -- Part 3: Research methods introduces the reader to current methods of measuring and mapping mobility in different environments and disciplines. Based on these, the methods selected for the purposes of this research are presented -- Part 4: Identifying factors of the office architectural design that influence mobility illustrates research data collection results on the basis of which statistical analysis is carried out. From this analysis, a quantitative (KINESIS) model is designed -- Conclusion and further objectives are suggested in the final chapter of this book.
