ARCH 311 / SPRING 2017

The architectural proposal for this facility addresses agoraphobia and agroforestry. Our architecture is influenced by the agoraphobic condition, which loosely defined are those individuals who suffer from the fear of open spaces.

A second influence in our proposal was agroforestry and how that aspect might also address the agoraphobic condition. We accomplish this through the introduction of new habitat and addition of pollinators, specifically bees to our site. Beekeeping and the habitat created for pollinators gives the agoraphobia a therapeutic opportunity that doesn’t commonly exist in the urban environment.
