A method of simulating the interaction between architectural environment and human action in the environment is described. The computational model consists of a model for building simulation, a model for action simulation, and a model to mediate the simulation models. This model is being developed to find the environmentally symbiotic actions and the knowledge and beliefs that people are encouraged to acquire to perform such actions. It might not be possible for the majority of traditional simulation to model an occupant as the individual having desire, belief, and intention. The proposed model may provide a solution to complement the disadvantage.
