Abstract

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.
