For this assignment, I had the opportunity to create a healing center through structure. My focus was on providing aid during the grieving process. A key component of my design are a series of light wells located within a group healing space. These tall wells bring in soft, natural light and help soothe visitors. They also have a symbolic purpose, as they represent the individuals who are gone. In my detail model, several aspects of the building’s design are revealed, such as the window assembly, the timber construction, and the layers of a green roof.
