Title: Live Active : An Architectural Response to Rehabilitation
Author: Pangrac, Adam
Abstract: This thesis researches and examines the way we respond to our environment, both natural and built. According to Newtonian physics, for every action there is an equal or opposite reaction. Default stairs, walls, windows, doors, roofs, and floors have compromised our ability to interact with our surroundings. If the environment allows, enjoyment can be found in the midst of struggle. Process is as vital as product. As a study of movement, motivation, balance, and blending; the following research is aimed toward architectural design. A dynamic shift in the way people interact with and perceive their surroundings to stay active. In Rapid City, SD a physical rehabilitation center will allow me to incorporate innovative architectural thinking. The facility is intended to allow the disabled to regain strength and endurance in a setting suited to their needs.
