user friendly design elements:
interior transoms (brings natural light to spaces deep in a floor)
in-floor radiant heating (energy efficient AND feels good)
pergo flooring (easily maintained and from recycled materials)
ok so those are details usually designed by suppliers FOR architects, but if it weren't for us, they wouldn't be included in buildings.

in a way, i think you were talking about how architects react to how people experience architecture. there are hundreds of innovations that architects have developed to enhance a user's experience:
trellises, atria, open-riser stairs, "cathedral" ceilings, stripper poles.

the thing is, i think that the only thing i got out of architecture school was designing experiences. that's the fun part for me anyway. in fact, i think that almost every architect on this forum would be insulted by your assertion that they don't have responsibility in people's experiences.
