Description

The theoretical foundation of this thesis is a critique of our current ocular-centric ideology of spatial design that makes it seem to be a merely visual practice. The author would argue that architecture, interior, and lighting design should work as an integrated entity to create multi-sensorial experiences for people. So they can appreciate unique moments in time and become more aware of how they perceive the space they inhabit. In order to have a more in-depth study, the scope of analysis focused on a high-rise residential interior in Manhattan. The analysis then leads to a series of overarching design principles, with tectonics specific to the space of study, but can be adapted and applied into a larger context.
