Abstract: 

This thesis aims to explore how architecture optimize the healing process through the senses, making it imperative that vision only reinforce the other senses. With only sight, people become detached from a relationship with the
environment through the suppression of the other senses. However by taking advantage of the other senses, is it possible to create a design for the body as opposed to it being visually and conceptually dominated? This will be applied in a clinical setting,to create a therapeutic environment. Following the concept that a healing space can be space which is not just
experienced visually but through all the senses.
