Building with organic light
The experience of daylight directly connects all human life to the universe of nature. Light is the empowering natural engine which anchors all human understanding of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual discovery.
“Building With Organic Light” is a search, through architecture, for the critical values of daylight and movement, in the environments designed for human health, disability, and recovery. This thesis document presents four specific design projects which focus on the value of environmental design specifically crafted to motivate the development of a child living with cerebral palsy. The work is grounded in the thesis that an architectural environment directly integrated with the energy of daylight and nature, is within itself a therapeutic vessel for human health.
