Master of Architecture
Today’s technological world is causing further separation between the mind and body, resulting in physiological and psychological issues. Mindfulness blurs this duality and helps people to be aware of their present life. This thesis explores the idea of presence and how architecture can play a role in creating moments of awareness. It investigates the ways architecture can engage the five senses through form, material, light and shadow, and connection to nature.
