People Standing

Standing is an upright human posture in which the body is supported only by the feet. Often misunderstood as a static position, standing is actually a form of dynamic balance where the center of the body is supported by rocking on the front of the ankle. Standing erect requires a high degree of coordination and control of a persons nervous system and core muscles to maintain stability. The average age in which humans begin to stand is between 8-12 months. Standing is believed to have beneficial cognitive and health impacts and many workplaces are now offering standing desks as a desk option.

Is standing good for your health?

Standing has been proven to decrease the risk of heart disease as standing lowers blood sugar and cholesterol while reducing weight. Standing is also correlated to reducing back pain, increased productivity, higher energy levels, and greater life expectancy.

How long should you stand at your desk?

Experts advise that people stand at their desk between 15-30 minutes every hour (1:4 to 1:3 ratio) to gain the health benefits of standing.

When do children learn to stand?

Children learn to stand without support as early as 8 months, with an average between 10-12 months.

Human Spacing - Social Space
Side elevation drawing dimensioning the various zones of human spacing that we consider as forms of social space

A social space is a gathering place where people gather and interact. It can be physical or virtual, like social media platforms. In physical social spaces there is usually a 4-12 feet distance between acquaintances. Some examples of social spaces are public places, such as town squares or parks, and others are privately owned and regulated, such as pubs and shopping malls.

Social spaces are used by various communities to conduct different types of social interaction, and it assigns appropriate places to different social relations. They can be used to implement a social cohesion in communities. As a result, the term spans greater than the dichotomy of public and private space.

Social space is perceived and adjusted depending on the situation and the level of friendship and/or understanding between people. A social spacing of 0’-4’ (0-1.22 m) between people would be considered too close. The most comfortable social spacing is typically in the range of 4’-7’ (1.22-2.13 m), while a distance of 7’-12’ (2.13-3.66 m) feels too far for social interactions.

Pointing - Men (Standing)

Pointing is the when one extends a finger to gesture towards something. Many cultures think pointing is rude. One can point obviously, with a fully extended arm, or stealthily by using their other hand to cover their point. Pointing lets other people you’re with understand who or what you’re talking about.

Human Spacing - Queuing
Side elevation drawing dimensioning various types of human spacing of Spacing - Queue Space

A queue space is a first-come, first-served area where people gather and wait for goods or services. Some typical applications include public transportation stations and terminals, large stores and supermarkets, and banks and post offices. Formalized queue areas are often organized by railings and can offer shelter from the elements; Disney Parks are a prime example.

To make the time in a queue more enjoyable, in-line entertainment and secondary queue areas may be added. To expand the capacity of the queue, planners may increase the length, increase the size of the lanes, or increase the length by designing the line in a serpentine shape.

Queuing is adjustable depending on the need for efficiency or perceived comfort of people in line. A spacing of 6”-8” (15.2-20.3 cm) between people leads to greater efficiency, a spacing of 12”-14” (30.5-35.6 cm) is commonly used, and a queuing spacing of 18”-22” (45.7-55.9 cm) offers a greater degree of comfort.
