Abstract

Architecture of today often features building technology that is degenerative and becomes rapidly obsolete. A solution to this dispirited situation is regenerative architecture. Regenerative architecture is a theory based on engaging the natural environment by responding to, and using, living and natural systems to guide the architectural design. The goals of regenerative architecture include ocusing on the health and wellbeing of inhabitants, environmental conservation, reduction of environmental impacts through building design, and aiding the restorative process of the natural world. This project investigates and establishes the symbiotic relationship between humans and the natural environment through regenerative architecture by investigating Nature Deficit Theory, while exploring the concepts of Biophilic Design and Psychology of Space. This project is an illustration of how regenerative architecture can create awareness and responsibility toward the natural environment.
