Architecture | Environmental Design
This thesis intends to explore and analyze the environmental, spatial, and architectural characteristics found within the timeless imaginary locations of children’s literature. Through tapping into these magnificent stories that are waiting to be imagined, visualized, and built, fresh and new learning environments can be created that flourish creativity and promote individuality. By translating the synergistic connection between a child and his/her favorite picture book and into the architecture of a space for learning, these narrative driven designs can render the wonderful and dreamy landscapes of fictional worlds in an unconventional way. Although merely stories and pictures, these famous works of literature and illustration are proverbial to children. By exploring the intimate relationships between the memorable structures of literature and the imaginative realm of architecture, a learning environment that intertwines children, teenagers, and adults can be designed.
