The environment has the power to affect human’s behavior. We, as human beings, perceive our environment very sensitively every single second. The environment is as important as the air we breathe. Elements of the environment that can affect people include spacial arrangement, light, sound, temperature, and smell, A good environmental design is attentive to human perception and can help to improve human working abilities. However, in the modern society, most of environmental designs are not friendly to people due to either limited budgets or limited space. A poorly designed environment may subliminally be perceived negatively and create a situation which may for some cause a decrease in working ability and a loss of efficiency. In my thesis, I will redesign the Winship B.204 to create an environment that can increase and improve people’s working ability. The design of the environment will incorporate lighting, sound, smell , spacial arrangement, and temperature with each other so as to define the style or even character of this space. In addition, I will explore different ways to apply natural elements to this environment. I will use the graduate studio, Winship B.204 as a prototype and to discover if the space with design adjustments, can improve people’s imagination and creativity.
