Ostatnie lata przyniosły duży wzrost liczby badań dotyczących szczęścia w architekturze, które definiowane było w różny sposób. Badania i zainteresowanie szczęściem i dobrostanem zostało nawet nazwane jednym z globalnych megatrendów. Politycy, ekonomiści, deweloperzy i badacze starają się zrozumieć istotę tej jakości w architekturze. Szereg metod badawczych zaczęto opracowywać, by zajmować się szczęściem w odniesieniu do budownictwa. Wiele z nich spopularyzowało się w środowisku naukowym. Celem tej publikacji jest przyjrzenie się tym tendencjom i zestawienie ich z dawno ugruntowanymi koncepcjami dotyczącymi szczęścia, eudemonii i wybaczania. Koncepcje takie były rozwijane od czasów Sokratesa, a dziś są stosowane przez badaczy z dziedziny psychologii pozytywnej, która może być przydatna w badaniach architektonicznych. Publikacja ta przytacza argumenty wspierające metody zespolone jako najlepszy sposób badania i zrozumienia zjawiska szczęścia w architekturze. Studium przypadku badań nad ludźmi zamieszkującymi historyczne budynki w Lincolnshire, w Anglii, oferuje przykłady ilustrujące, jak metody zespolone mogą korygować potencjalne słabe aspekty pojedynczych metod, które same w sobie mogą być mylące, i doprowadzać do błędnych wniosków, o ile zastosowane są w oderwaniu od kontekstu.

Recently, the pursuit of well-being in architecture has been called one of the main global megatrends. Politicians, economists, developers and researchers try to define the concept. Several methodologies of measuring well-being and satisfaction have been developed and popularised in architectural research. This paper aims to review those tendencies and juxtapose them with established concepts of happiness, eudemonia and forgiveness, which have been developed by thinkers and researchers since the time of Socrates and which are being revitalised by positive psychologists today. The paper builds a case for mixed-method research as the best way of investigating and understanding the complexity of well-being. The case study of research on heritage houses in Lincolnshire, UK, offers examples illustrating how mixed-method research could correct drawbacks of single methodologies which could be very misleading if applied individually.
