Abstract

Health centres, like hospitals and clinics, tend to be unwelcome, sterile environments. This dissertation is about the making of a conventional and complementary health centre that aims to be a place-making building. This intervantion will give a sense of place and give identity, which the Modern Movement has so cleary disrupted. The intention would be to emphasise place through sensory experiences. By this the user will be connecting (orientate and identify) to a sense of place and then ultimately to him or herself through the various therapies.
