Architectural Design: Thesis

   
THESIS: ELEMENTAL DESIGN & THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE MIND  
Exploring the psychology of architecture through the medium of water  

While society is scientifically aware of the benefits of water, this thesis explores water on the experiential level through architecture. Its focus is on the psychology of space and the benefits of water to best enhance the experience of design, exploring water as a balance of technological science and natural poetry.

The designed thesis building, The Reflecting Pool - named to overlap the characteristic of water to personal, inner contemplation - explores the psychological overlap of architecture and water, exploring the use of water as an integrated design feature, not simply as an accessory to design; it is about the building being in water, not just water being in the building. Sensory design, embracing the poetry with the functionality of water, and sustainability are the three architectonic issues around which this thesis revolves. Creating sensory and water-architectonic "moments" of experience to best embody the many "faces" of water was the main focus of the design work.
