BEHAVIORAL HEALTHCARE FACILITY FOR CHILDREN, LAKE BRYAN ? In any behavioral disorder, the individual isolates oneself from the society. One of the best ways to bring the individual back to normalcy is through social interaction. ? The social interaction occurs at two levels; among the people using the space and with the elements surrounding the space. ? The form was chosen that comprises of elements that face inwards fostering the concept of interaction with each other. ? In order to avoid the feeling of closure from the surrounding; the corners that confine the space were removed merging the design with the surrounding. ? The lighthouse at end of the pathway ,increases the freedom of choice and helps in further merging with the surrounding.

Reasons for choice of site: The site is located away from the noisy activity zone ensuring privacy to the young patients. • The site has visual connection to the activity around icehouse or the pavilion which would make them feel more normal and part of the community. • The site seems secure and serene, since it gently slopes towards the lake. • The site has greater flexibility of planning the vegetation appropriate for a behavioral health facility.

Individual- Masters I st Year Project

? Major objective of design was to connect

? The Lincoln Multicultural High School will support the

the existing Lincoln center to the high school to assist the Lincoln center in its after-school programs. Thus challenge was to make the existing and the built as homogenous as possible. ? The classrooms were placed in the quieter part of the site while recreational spaces like auditorium were placed in the vibrant part of the site. ? Social interactive spaces shared by the community and students such as library, cafeteria, career technology were placed in the center. ? The arrangement of built spaces created unbuilt spaces or plazas that support the function and multi-cultural concept.

physical, emotional and mental development of students by introducing them to varied disciplines and increasing awareness of the diversity. The school will address the needs of the community. ? These objectives will be supported via social interaction spaces; community- accessible food, art and performance plazas with themes related to diversity of culture, after-school program space and learning through constant connect with the environment. ? A multi- educational facility, porous and supportive to its community is critical to the development of a healthy and peaceful society and efficient leaders for tomorrow.
