Have you ever walked into a building and felt your mood change? Has the design, layout, or color scheme of a space had a noticeable impact on your state of mind?
During this mini-unit, students will have the opportunity to learn about the emotion of spaces, or how buildings “feel” to observers.They will use that knowledge to create their own virtual space. Through a goal-oriented research and design project, students will learn about the study and practical application of emergent theories of architectural psychology.
In this lesson, we will explore the following questions:
- What is the psychology of architecture?
- How do different physical spaces change the way we feel?
- How does architecture change our cognitive abilities, physical well-being, and social aptitude?
By the end of this lesson, students should be able to use the tools and assets of Twinmotion to design virtual space with a distinct psychological purpose.
Students will be able to:
- Students will discover and identify facts about the emergent field of architectural psychology.
- Students will learn research methods associated with psychological surveys.
- Students will incorporate their discoveries to utilize Twinmotion to visualize and design spaces.
- Students will synthesize their knowledge of the course content to share projects.
