Department The University of British Columbia Vancouver, Canada DE-6 (2/88) ABSTRACT This thesis project is about reinstating the human body into healthcare architecture. Implicit in this intention are ideas about tactility, intimacy, and movement as experiential aspects of archi-tectural perception. The project attempts to bring physical form to a new paradigm about wholistic healthcare involving a continuum that ranges from a reactive approach to health involving treatment of injury and disability to a proactive approach to health involving pre-ventative and fitness programs. ii TABLE OF CONTENTS Abstract ii Table of Contents iii List of Figures iv Acknowledgement ' v Site Plan 1 Ground Floor Plan 2 Second Floor Plan 3 Context Elevations 4 Project Sections 6 Project Elevations 10 Concept Collage 13 Context Model 14 Project Model 15 iii LIST OF FIGURES Figure 1 Site Plan Including Proposed Building 1 Figure 2 Ground Floor Plan 2 Figure 3 Second Floor Plan 3 Figure 4 South Elevation Including Existing Daycare Building 4 Figure 5 North Elevation Including Existing Parking Garage 5 Figure 6 North Section Through Library and Meeting Room 6 Figure 7 South Section Through Courtyard 7 Figure 8 North Section Through Gym and Change Room 8 Figure 9 West Section Through Gym and Meeting Room 9 Figure 10 South Elevation 10 Figure 11 North Elevation 11 Figure 12 East Elevation 12 Figure 13 Concept Collage of Running Track 13 Figure 14 Context Model 14 Figure 15 View of Project Model Without Roofs 15 Figure 16 Detail of Courtyard Entrance 16 Figure 17 Detail of Physiotherapy Unit 17 iv ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I wish to thank Patricia Patkau, Sandy Hirshen, Sherry McKay, and Andy Butler for their sight, encouragement, and patience. 1 2 3 4 5 4 6 7 8 ( 9 10 c o > > W W CN 3 12 13 14 1 5 16 17
