The facility will act to nicely complement Cornell Health’s reactive care as it will provide services for preventative and resorative care. In providing nutritional, physical, and restorative experiences to students, staff, and faculty, The Wellness Hub will foster daily healthy habits to its community through its convenient and inviting atmosphere.

U S E R S To begin creating the facility’s design, four persona’s were made to represent the ideal, general expectations of some of the stakeholders who will be occupying the space. Personas aid in the design process by noting the various aspects and traits of the users that will influence how they interact with their environment.

Spatial planning influences the distribution of people and activities into various locations of a designated space. By taking into account how a space works aesthetically and ergonomically, where focal points should be for other practical matters such as storage, and how one area relates to others within the property, spatial planning is used to optimize the space for the best use of circulation space and flow from room to room.

The Dana Farber Cancer Institute, shown in the center of the images, inspired the project to take on an assortment of restorative qualities throughout the entirety of its design. The U.S. Green Building Council awarded the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Yawkey Center for Cancer Care its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED Ž) Gold certification in recognition of its design and construction that conserves natural resources, reduces waste, and promotes health among its patients, staff, and visitors.

Figure 1

Identify the impacts that design has on consumer purchasing behavior within Cornell’s campus.

D E S I G N

Kitchen

The Temple of Zeus operates in three separate functions, as shown in Figure 1. The cafe offers three groups of items: soup, sandwiches/salads, and allday items.

Soup

Salad/Sandwich

Users purchasing soup (marked by black arrows) wait in a separate line, order soup, and pay for their items at the soup station, which has its own register. Users purchasing a salad/sandwich (marked by green arrows) wait in a separate line, which funnels into three different stations. Once the sandwich/salad has been made, these users funnel into the line for all-day items, where they wait in a second line to pay for their food. Users purchasing all-day items (marked by orange arrows) wait in one line and pay for their item as they order it. This line includes users who have already picked up their salad/sandwich.

H Y P O T H E S I S I hypothesized that the design layout of the soup line leads to greater efficiency, decreasing an individual’s lunch wait time. This nudges individuals to purchase soup, opting out of purchasing a salad or sandwich, in order to make best use of one’s time.

M E T H O D S Individuals purchasing soup were surveyed after they had made their purchase. A total 41 individuals were surveyed during the range of 1:00-1:30 pm. The survey was distributed evenly between a Tuesday & Wednesday. (Tuesday, n = 21; Wednesday, n = 20). Individuals were verbally asked, “Did you purchase soup because you preferred soup, or did you opt out of purchasing a sandwich/salad today due to the line?” Individuals were divided up into 3 categories, as seen in Figure 2. No follow up questions were asked in the survey.

R E S U L T S Responses, shown in Figure 2, indictated that the majority of soup consumers made their purchasing decision in order to save time, rather than out of preference.

C O N C L U S I O N This study indicates that a majority of consumers purchasing soup at The Temple of Zeus made their purchase in order to save time, rather than out of preference for soup. Ultimately, the time savings associated with ordering soup is due to the fact that the soup station has a register at its point of sale, while the sandwich and salad line do not.

I have to be in class in 15 minutes, I have to get a soup.

I just can’t afford to wait that long.

I’m not going to wait when I have work to do.

The implementation of kiosks and mobile ordering will aid in alleviating both the crowdedness within the facility as well as the visual length of time to receive food. Through employing both standing and table kiosks in addition to online and mobile ordering, the Temple of Zeus will be able to maintain retail organization while offering consumers their array of food options without visual discouragement.

With the information from the interview, a task analysis was conducted in order to digest the user’s daily duties into tangible design goals for future renovations. Five key elemnets of design were exposed in order to fix the occuring problems, while maintaining current sucesses. With the implementation of the goals, the user’s work will be optimized.

My interest in enviornmental design first sparked as I babysat Allison, a 12 year old girl who, since birth, has been diagnosed with several serious and life-threatening medical conditions. As her residency in hospitals increased, as did mine. this frequency allowed me to get a glimpse of what she and many other children has had to endure: drab-colored, windowless hospital cubicles, creating an overall sullen atmosphere. As challenging as it already is for these children, the built enviornment should not be a factor to add to their issues. As I saw how the design of Allison’s hospital could greatly improve the well-being of all the children, I realized the broader gap in design across a variety environments. In seeing this opportunity to help many people, I made the choice to fill the void.
