Abstract: Identifying human attachment to the environment by developing different degrees, spatial ranges and dimensions, this study aims to further the growing body of knowledge about the discipline of Environmental Psychology within the process of interior design solving problems. Environmental Psychology provides an analytic point of view up on the existing built environment with a rich and diverse set of quantitative indicators for characterizing spaces in many ways that are potentially relevant to a variety of psychological responses, including choosing routes while locomotion, orientation and disorientation, spatial knowledge acquisition, perceived spaciousness, privacy and social interaction, stress and fear, and aesthetic judgments (Kolb, 1984). Experimental Learning Theory defines learning as "the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience". This study makes the emphasis on "exploratory" and "descriptive" aspects of the Environmental Psychology within the real life context, providing comprehensive information to be inferred and issued in a complementary manner in interior design education. In such a way that; viable physical environment, social organization and norms, characteristics of people objectives are to determinants empirically whether, and how the use of experience and practices can improve design problem-solving by both novice and expert designers. In this context, this study presents applied samples and outcomes of course works of case-based instruction and its description development to be applied as medium synthesizing and/or assimilating with various observations for new idea generation process of design.
