Jean Wineman is a professor emerita of architecture at the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. She also is an architectural researcher who is experienced in environmental programming, design, and evaluation. Her scholarship, research, and teaching explore the links between visual and spatial properties of architecture and behavioral and educational outcomes. Her recent research and scholarship builds an understanding of the role of spatial and visual relations in residential satisfaction and behavior in urban contexts, in educational outcomes in zoos and museums, and in support of work performance, communication, and innovation. Wineman was a principal investigator of the project, “Spatial and Social Networks in Organizational Innovation,” which is funded by the National Science Foundation, and a co-principal investigator of “Healthy Environments Partnership: Lean and Green in Motown.” Her recent projects include “Exhibition Layout and Visitor Movement in Science Museums,” which is funded by the National Science Foundation, and “Identifying Environmental Predictors of High Work Performance,” which is funded by the U.S. General Services Administration.
