Humans, as the most dominant form of animal life on the planet, are beings whose properties, dimensions, and traits have the most direct impact on the qualities of the built environment. Connected to the known standard measurements and sizes of the human body, the designed objects that constitute our everyday spaces are created to best support use by human beings. The following guides have been put together for you as overviews covering a variety of physical and social standards of human existence that include shapes, sizes, growth stages, movements, postures, and group dynamics. These collections will continue to grow through our ongoing efforts in illustrating and documenting the many anthropometric details of humans.
