Ever wonder why humanity is so stressed today? Are we not miserable at our jobs? It may not be the activity that is stressing you, it might just be the architecture. This thesis explores 'Intuitive Architecture' through research and design. Our human senses made manifest through our innate habits hold us captive during times of glee but also through times of boredom. Intuitive architecture may be the design outlet you need for a well formed and experiential building.

Today, we are at a crisis. Architecture constitutes the greatest range of the built environment; yet our buildings are causing physiological and mental stress to the public. Architecture is slowly dwindling away into a field where efficiency is more important than purpose and practicality. We have lost focus of the human component. Fortunately, if architecture is turns around and starts designing intuitively by engaging the public’s senses through innate habits, we can reduce the stress caused by ‘counter-intuitive’ design.
