Description/Abstract

This thesis proposes that rehabilitating effects can be achieved through natural stimulation facilitated by the architectural design. It argues that while hospital design requires stress reduction to improve healing, a polar experience of hyper stimulation is also necessary for a substance abuser in order to yield a decrease of relapse rates.
