Abstract: 

Architecture is a story which unfolds through drawing. The experience of architecture affects us, it stimulates people and can affect their wellbeing. Happiness is the foremost significant emotion in the architecture of emotional drawings. Drawing can reveal what the spoken word cannot, it can bequeath wellbeing as it is an expression of conscious and unconscious desires.

Drawings are essentially constructed of subjective artistic experiences; whilst healthcare is grounded in objective scientific research. To explore the context of drawing and wellbeing at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, it is necessary to consider both frameworks. It is the scope of this thesis to research a qualitative phenomenological approach, revealed through drawings, to express how one experiences happiness and by connecting it to existing evidence-based and quantitative research. How can drawing become a way of imagining the new addition at CHEO; a cultivated place which can stimulate an environment of wellbeing.
