Neurotic: Mind, Body, Soul, Architecture
More InformationShow full item record
This project is meant to embrace and design for our different minds. The idea is to create a place where we can be ourselves and retreat to a state of mind that puts our emotions or neuroses at ease. People seek places where they feel comfortable, accepted, or “normal” in society. This therapeutic hybrid typology will be located on a scenic hill near the Missouri River in Bismarck, ND. It will be affiliated with the two colleges in the city, and used by students, faculty, therapists, and the community. The project scope is to relate therapy spaces with spa-like spaces, and incorporate an atmosphere that is reminiscent to a college student union building. It will total about 18,000 square feet. Through mixed method research this thesis project will reveal how we react to our surroundings, and how our surroundings affect us.
