Abstract: 

This Master’s Thesis seeks to determine which aspect of an ecological setting will promote occupant health, productivity and ecological awareness through a detailed study. In conjunction with this familiarity study, research will be conducted into emerging technologies which can remedy the effects of urban air pollution. The most promising system will be selected, and will be redesigned to be incorporated into an architectural composition. The final project for this thesis will involve combining the data accumulated from the survey along with the remediation technology into an architectural design. This project will actively reduce surrounding pollution while fostering a greater relationship between local ecology and the building's occupants, creating the first truly holistic architectural design.
