Over the last decade, if not more, Architecture has blown up and grown to be something that can be so wildly unique but also in today’s day and age, so incredibly modern. This being said, I think sometimes Architects lose sight or even ignore what humans truly need for a healthy wellbeing and just focus on the beauty of the design. But, why not have both? Ask yourself what is considered while designing a residential building? A lot does go into the process and phases but is the wellbeing of the resident being considered and what could be done/designed to help them while they decide to reside there? This thesis helps answer the question, “How can interconnecting Architecture and nature within residential buildings affect residents in a positive way?” The goal within this thesis is to interconnect the natural world to residential building complexes using the research of biophilic design and environmental psychology. This will help to create a positive environment for people to live in and be a part of.
