  • Abstract in English : In recent years considerable attention has been focused on the fit or congruence of individual and environment. One might think that this extensive effort would provide insight into the sort of environments that are most suitable for people. To a great extent however, this has not been realized. This paper takes as its starting point the informational processes that underlie all human efforts to function in the world. By looking at the sorts of environments that support such basic processes as perception, attention, and planning, it is hoped that a better understanding of the human-environment interface will be achieved.
