1. Almashal, Leith A. Elemental - Connecting the User with the Planet through Architecture.

Degree: M. Arch., Industrial Design, 2018, Virginia Tech

The modern world has forgotten a crucial part of what historically has been a beautiful experience in our homes: its connection to the planet. This thesis proposes a mix-use building that acts as an instrument to connect the users with the planet while maintaining contemporary standards of living. I believe that human beings have an innate tendency to connect with nature. The building design will have a passive aspect that is experiential and the active aspect that is functional. The spaces come alive through design by translating the planets four elements as a part of the daily lives of the users, activating the Fifth element, the Spirit. Connecting with nature on a fundamental level will enhance the inhabitants experience and create a connection with the planet through the spaces we inhabit. Advisors/Committee Members: Piedmont-Palladino, Susan C (committeechair), Emmons, Paul F (committee member), Kelsch, Paul J (committee member).

Subjects/Keywords: Elements; Spirit; Passive; Experience
