I am a driven person keen to explore the dialogue between human, place and memories.
In order to explore this further, I selected my final year project as an opportunity to explore the environmental transition between memories and reality.
From people to memory, from memory to place, I believe the interconnected nature of this concept relates to the essence of interior and architecture.
I wanted to provide elderly dementia patients with opportunities to recollect precious memories by examining the existing issues they are facing in a tailored spatial environment.
Sources of nostalgia – from tangible objects and finishes, to the intangible; senses, scales, atmosphere, cultures, and activities, extending into spirituality – are deployed to create an artificial reality world with the intention being the support of its users.
I intend that this project acts as a beacon of possibility for this vulnerable group of people and a catalyst for building a dementia-friendly community in human-scaled architectural developments.
