Project: Restorative Urban Community
Location: Miami, Fl.
Softwares: Revit, Lumion, Adobe CC
Class: Studio VI & VII
As the world’s population continues to grow, the planet and its inhabitants are experiencing declining mental and physical health. Living in these conditions has been known to create a stressful atmosphere that can lead to depression, anxiety, and even a feeling of hopelessness. Unfortunately, the lack of funding and even understanding of the benefits of integrating biophilic design within cities has generated significant push back for such additions.
The hotel/community center will be designed with a focus on wellness and improved overall well-being. The clients and users will be all who wish to learn, experience, and transform their current life-styles into a more holistic and rejuvenating one. The space will also serve as a destination for all who feel they need to improve their current psychological and physical self with the help of a design that will restore and renew.
