PREPARATION FOR MY THESIS YEAR AT OcAD UNIvERSITY.

TO DERIvE FROM THEM A cOMMON THEME TO INSPIRE A THESIS STATEMENT.

cHOSEN AREA OF INTEREST IS A cOMbINATION OF MY

THREE TYPOLOGIES WHIcH ARE HOW THE bUILT ENvIRON-

MENT IMPAcTS HEALTH, GEOMETRIcAL FEATS, AND LEARNING. I bELIEvE A cOMbINATION OF THE THREE cOULD ASK THE

HOW cAN THE bUILT ENvIRONMENT’S GEOMETRY HAvE A POSITIvE IMPAcT/INFLUENcE ON MENTAL HEALTH AND LEARNING. MY bUILDING cOULD QUESTION,

cOMPRISE OF A LEARNING bASED PROGRAM AND WOULD bE

MADE TO bETTER MENTAL HEALTH THROUGH ITS bUILT ENvIRONMENT AND GEOMETRY.

THIS

bUILDING WOULD INcORPO-

RATE LEARNING WITH MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-bEING INTO A GEOMETRIcAL AND MATHEMATIcALLY INcLINED bUILDING STRUcTURE.

THESIS STATEMENT

HOw DOES A CON-

NECTION TO NATURE IMPROVE A CHILD’S wELL BEING?

MENTAL HEALTH CAN BE IMPROVED BY ONES BUILT ENVIRONMENT


INTEREST MAPPING THE

cOMMON THEMES OF INTEREST I FOUND IN MY WORK AND LIFE ARE AS FOLLOWS;

DESIGNING, MAKING AND bUILDING, MATH, GEOMETRY, ScIENcE, THE ENvIRONMENT, NATURE, THE cITY AND SPATIAL ENvIRONMENTS.

IN

INTERESTING MATERIALS AND USE OF LIGHT.

INTERESTS INcLUDE ARcHITEcTURE,

MY WORK I GET MOTIvATED AND

EXcITED bY UNIQUE FORMS OF GEOMETRY, SPATIAL FLOWS, cHALLENGING MATHEMATIcS,

MY

DESIGN, MATH, GEOMETRY, LIGHTING, TRAvELING, PHOTOGRAPHY, AND HIKING MOUNTAINS.

IN

TERMS OF DESIGN, I WOULD ENJOY WORKING IN THE FIELDS OF ARcHITEc-

TURAL DESIGN DEvELOPMENT, INTERIOR SPATIAL PLANNING, AND LIGHTING DESIGN.

THE

cAUSES I AM MOST INTERESTED IN ARE ENvIRONMENTAL SUSTAINAbILITY, cREATING A

bEAUTIFUL cITY THROUGH THE bUILT ENvIRONMENT WITH INNOvATIvE DESIGN, AND cREATING INcLUSIvE bUILDINGS WHIcH STIMULATE SOcIAL INTERAcTION, WELcOME ALL AND

ARE SAFE FOR DISAbLED INDIvIDUALS AS WELL AS INDIvIDUALS SUFFERING FROM MENTAL ILLNESS.

PROJEcT

TYPES THAT MORE REPRESENT THE INTERESTS I MENTIONED PREvIOUS-

LY WOULD HAvE INTERESTING SOcIALLY STIMULATING PROGRAMS AND bE INcLUSIvE WHILE PLAYING WITH THE FLOW AND USE OF SPAcE, MATERIALS, GEOMETRY AND LIGHTING.

TYPOLOGY

THE

FOLLOWING ARE TYPOLOGIES WHIcH I WOULD LIKE TO

INcORPORATE INTO MY FINAL bUILDING TYPOLOGY.

1. HEALTH

AND ENvIRONMENT

2. GEOMETRIcAL 3. LEARNING

9

FEAT


THE

FIST TYPOLOGY I HAvE cHOSEN TO RESEARcH IS bUILDINGS WHIcH PROMOTE PHYS-

IcAL AND MENTAL HEALTH bY THEIR bUILT ENvIRONMENT.

THIS

TYPOLOGY HAS STEMMED

FROM MY RESEARcH TOPIc OF THE IMPAcT OF THE bUILT ENvIRONMENT ON MENTAL HEALTH, WHIcH STEMMED FROM MY cOMMON INTEREST OF THE ENvIRONMENT, NATURE, THE cITY AND SPATIAL ENvIRONMENT.

THIS

bUILDING TYPOLOGY OF MENTAL HEALTH WITH A RELATION

TO THE bUILT ENvIRONMENT cOULD INcLUDE bUILDINGS IN WHIcH THE ARcHITEcT DELIbERATELY RESEARcHED A WAY TO MAKE THE HUMAN EXPERIENcE IN THEIR bUILDING MAXIMIZED AND FOR THE bUILDING TO ENRIcH MENTAL HEALTH. HAvE FOUND WHIcH FIT INTO THIS TYPOLOGY ARE THE

SOME

OF THE EXAMPLES I

COLOGNE OvAL OFFIcES

WHIcH

FOcUSES ON MAKING A WORK SPAcE TO bENEFIT THE WORKERS AND MAKE A MOST ENJOYAbLE WORK SPAcE.

THE

SEcOND EXAMPLE IS

GARDENS

bY THE

BAY

IN WHIcH THE ARcHITEcT

WANTED TO cREATE A HEALTHY AND ENRIcHING SPAcE FOR vISITORS TO EScAPE THE cITY AND FIND PEAcE.

HOMELESS. THESE

THE

THIRD EXAMPLE I HAvE cHOSEN IS

HEXAGONAL PODS

FOR THE

WILL AID THE HEALTH OF THOSE WHO ARE LESS FORTUNATE TO SUPPLY

THEIR OWN SHELTER AND

HYGIENE.

THIS

TYPOLOGY WAS DEvELOPED FROM MY INTERESTS

OF DESIGNING SAFE SPAcES, MENTAL HEALTH, THE ENvIRONMENT, SUSTAINAbLE DESIGN, AND OF cOURSE INTERESTING ARcHITEcTURE.

10


THE

SEcOND TYPOLOGY I cHOSE TO FOcUS ON WAS GEOMETRIcAL FEATS.

THIS

TYPOLOGY

STEMMED FROM MY RESEARcH TOPIc OF EFFIcIENT GEOMETRY AND SPEcIAL RESOLUTIONS FOR bUILDINGS WHIcH STEMMED FROM MY INTEREST IN GEOMETRY, MATH AND ScIENcE.

A

LOT

OF MY PAST PROJEcTS HAvE INvOLvED SOME SORT OF UNcONvENTIONAL GEOMETRY AS IT IS WHAT MAKES ME EXcITED AbOUT THE PROJEcT AND I EXPERIENcE FLOW WHEN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW SOMETHING cAN GEOMETRIcALLY FIT TOGETHER OR WORK. AMPLE OF THIS I HAvE cHOSEN IS THE

AL DAR HEADQUARTERS

THE

bEcAUSE ITS UNcOMMON TO

FIND cIRcULAR GEOMETRY IN bUILDINGS AND SO THAT IS WHAT DRAWS ME IN. THE FIGURED OUT HOW TO MAKE THIS bUILDING WORK FAScINATES ME. AMPLE IS THE TIFUL TO ME. EXcEPTIONAL.

HEYDAR ALIYEv CENTER THE

MY

FIRST EX-

THE

THE

WAY

SEcOND EX-

bEcAUSE AGAIN ITS UNUSUAL GEOMETRY IS bEAU-

THIRD EXAMPLE IS THE

MARKTHAL ROTTERDAM

AS ITS GEOMETRY IS

INTERESTS WHIcH LED TO THIS TYPOLOGY WERE cREATING INNOvATIvE

GEOMETRIcAL DESIGN, NOT bEING bORING, cHALLENGES, bUILDING SOMETHING bEAUTIFUL, cREATING SOMETHING UNIQUE, MATH AND GROMETRY.

11


THE

THIRD TYPOLOGY IS LEARNING.

THIS

cAME FROM MY RESEARcH TOPIc OF cREATING

SOcIALLY STIMULATING AND INcLUSIvE SPAcES WHIcH cAME FROM MY INTEREST IN SPA-

TIAL ENvIRONMENT, cHILDREN, DESIGNING SAFE SPAcES, SOcIAL STIMULATION, ENJOYMENT, cREATING, LEARNING, EXPLORING, AND ObSERvING. cHOSEN TO REPRESENT MY TYPOLOGY IS THE

THE

FIRST EXAMPLE I HAvE

SOMA CITY HOME-FOR-ALL. THIS

bUILD-

ING IS A cOMMUNITY cENTER WHIcH WAS MADE TO STIMULATE GROWTH, LEARNING, MENTAL HEALTH AND SOcIAL INTERAcTION.

THE

SEcOND EXAMPLE IS THE

GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM

WHIcH IS AN EXAMPLE IF A GEOMETRIcAL FEAT cOMbINED WITH A cENTER FOR DIScOvERY AND LEARNING.

THE

THIRD EXAMPLE IS

FARMING KINDERGARTEN

WHIcH IS AN EXAMPLE OF

bOTH MENTAL HEALTH bEING HELPED bY THE ENvIRONMENT AND LEARNING.

IT

FOcUSES ON

A GREEN ENvIRONMENT TO STIMULATE HEALTHY bEING, SOcIAL AND LEARNING.
