Title: Emphasis on Nature
Author: Brown, Melissa
Abstract: This thesis “Emphasis on Nature” will attempt to create an atmosphere that provides better healing and a more vital quality of life for people dealing with cancer. The healing process is different for every person, and there are many ways to help a person in this situation, whether it be through education about the processes, surrounding oneself with nature, or experiencing new adventures. Providing spaces that can aid in healing is a very essential part of the design for this facility. Humans and nature are interconnected, and both need to be treated in a holistic way, which is why the design will incorporate a treatment, research, and holistic rehabilitation areas, that has a 23,640 sq ft total. This facility is derived from the effects of the environment on the healing attributes for cancer patients and their families in the Midwest. This design will use the principles of regenerative architecture, which is an interconnected relationship between the systems of nature, the built environment, and the user of the space. These connections create great foundation for the holistic treatment of a person who has cancer to sustain a healthy lifestyle.Key term: Regenerative Architecture, Environment, Holistic
