Expected Encounters

Yale Architecture Core 3, 2021

For a mental health center, the project seeks to normalize the experiences of seeking the treatment of mental illness, as if they are the continuation of a patient’s daily activities on the street. Two systems of partitions are developed: the opaque and the transparent. They form a gradation of private, semi-private to social spaces; and from sheltered and controlled indoor climate to semi-open and to completely open to natural elements. Their combinations would create moments of solidarity, respite and social life – the moments of “expected encounters”.
