Master of Architecture
Architecture has lost focus on the user experience and the influence that it creates on the overall health of society. One solution is an architecture of atmospheric experience, a theory based on the relationship between sensorial perception, cognitive perception, and environmental qualities that seeks to encourage a shift in behavior. This thesis explores how designing with atmospheric experience can create a place of well-being for all users. This is executed through the design of a wellness center that is located in Shelby Farms, Memphis, Tennessee.
