The purpose of the thesis is to create a psychiatric facility located in Aalborg, Denmark. The project will focus on the notion of deinstitutionalizing the architectural space; creating an environment that seeks to promote healing and lower the hospitalization duration.
In terms of utilizing the notion of deinstitutionalized space, the project will seek to understand its opposite, the institution, and how its counterpart - a non-hierarchical, humanized environment, can be created in a design proposal.
The project will integrate elements of evidence based design into the inal proposal, thus seeking to integrate scientiically proven methods into the proposal. The project will also seek to combine functional, aesthetic and technical aspects through an integrated design process.
