Dining Layouts

* Under Development *

Dining layouts are designed to better understand the spatial requirements and relationships between the human body and the varied communal rituals of dining. Concerned primarily with size of tables based on individual place settings, user accommodations, and the clearances around tables for service and movement, dining layouts attempt to make sense of the many simultaneous conditions of dining in order to propose spatial recommendations for quality dining experiences.
