Rantan The Lantern Kiosk Exhibit
Kyoto is Japan’s third largest city and also one its oldest. It was originally founded as Heian in 794, and had its golden age during the court’s heyday from 794 to 1185. Home to many cultural landmarks and historical sites, Kyoto is thought of as the heart of Japan. The city still bears the name Kyoto, or “Capital City,” even though the emperor and the National Diet are located in Tokyo. For most of Japan’s history, Heian was the center not only of government but of learning and the arts. My concept is a traditional wooden japanese lantern. I was mainly inspired by the form of the objectect. I will use material that help represent the history of the culture, while also giving a high end feel to the kiosk for comfort. There will be signage on the more iconic and symbolic objects that will direct the users the space. The inside of the kiosk will have a seating area for visitors to relax and meditate.

Box Light Bauhaus Lighting Design
Box Light The concept for this design is the Bauhaus. This design incorporates geometric forms, similarly to the artworks from the Bauhaus Movement. Different sized squares were used to create an art sculpture ambiance to the lighting fixture. This fixture will be used for ambient lighting. This will be achieved through the diffusion of light using frosted glass. The boxes themselves, will be made out of brushed metal. The entire fixture will be suspended and powered by cable wires on each side.

Apalachee Parkway was constructed in 1957 after winning a contest to select a name. It pays homage to the first inhabitants of the area (Apalachee Indians), as well as the nearby Appalachian Mountains. As a warm and extremely humid area, Tallahassee has become an allergy capital. Itchy eyes, runny noses, and persistent sniffles continue to be common symptoms. Tallahassee has a consistent medium-high pollen index of 7.3â€“9.7. With around 40% of the population suffering from allergies (Etters, 2014), residents of Tallahassee have fallen prone to the yearly pitfalls of pollen. With this being said, there is a need for a space that provides treatment for these allergies and their associated symptoms. Etters, K. (2014, April 3).

Affordable health care is the goal. Especially in a lower median income area like Tallahassee. The Salt Spa allergy center will serve as a treatment and medical spa for the population of Tallahassee, specifically for those who suffer from allergies. The Salt Spa will be an au natural treatment center that capitalizes off the healing properties of Himalayan Pink Salt. The wellness spa is using this large footprint as a resource for not only allergies, but as an overall wellness spa for the body. Not only will the Salt Spa be a place for healing, but it will also contribute to the local economic prosperity by providing employment for the residents of Tallahassee. As well as acting as get away for health, beauty, and mental wellness.
Reposed Grotto The concept of Reposed Grotto is meant to be thought provoking. Reposure symbolizes peace and calmness, while a grotto is a cool, hazy picturesque area with flowing water and other natural elements. When thinking about how this space should make visitors feel, words like tranquil and relaxing come to mind. Therefore, a space that can cater to all health needs universally is ideal. This concept will translate not only into the users of the space should feel, but also the ambiance of the space itself. Reposure embodies the ambiance and evoke feeling of the space itself. Running water, softer music, and dimmed lighting all work together to create an effortlessly restful space. Soft, rounded forms and elements draw inspiration from the different organic treatments that are used within the facility. The circulation of the space comes together with direct paths of travel to make the transition between different areas less stressful. The finishes of the space are delineated through the needs of each healing process. The salt spa will have imported Himalayan pink salt bricks, as well as a neutral toned color palette. Visitors should feel a sense of renewal and serenity, as the concept of a Reposed Grotto has been interwoven throughout all aspects of this space to promote healing and comfort.

White is a fresh, peaceful color is used widely in interior design theory where it can instill feelings of youthfulness, faith and innocence. White can help smaller spaces appear large. It can also make rooms look livelier, fresher and crisper. Pink has a calming effect on people. It is not aggressive like red, but rather suggests safety and vulnerability. In small doses, pink calms people, but if it is overused it can lead to irritation and inspire feelings of weakness, especially in men. Green is a lively color, and it symbolizes renewal and growth. It is the color you see the most in the natural environment. So it is the color of spring, when everything comes to life. And it depicts the period when everything is alive and unrolling its natural processes. Black is the color of wisdom. Black, in interior design theory, is always used in small amounts with contrasting, complementary colors. When used right, it can add depth and timeless elegance to a room. Avoid using black in large quantities as it can seem oppressive. Color Psychology - Meaning & Personality. (n.d.). Retrieved from https://www.colorpsychology.org.
