GREEN HOUSE- Functional Division
When I was working on this project, Glasgow was affected by Covid-19, and many people were locked into their homes, feeling unhappy or frustrated. So I got to thinking: when do people feel better at home? ”
Humans have a close relationship with nature, and so integrating the natural world into indoor space could effectively increase people’s engagement with nature, and this, in turn, may benefit their health and comfort. Indoor plants have also been shown to have an indirect unconscious psychological effect on task performance, health, and levels of stress. Indoor plants can act as indoor air purifiers, they are an effective way to reduce pollutants indoors to reduce human exposure, and have been widely studied in this regard. Indoor plants have potential applications in people’s health and comfort. Making full use of various effects in plants benefits human health and comfort.” After talking to my friends and research, I came to the conclusion that seeing plants makes people feel lighter. I think it is essential to do some plant research. So I went online and collected some information about houseplants. From https://www.thompson-morgan.com/houseplants, I understand that different plants have different needs for the environment. There are lots of types of indoor plants. I divided the plants into four types: light-loving type, hanging type, semi-shade-loving type, and shade-loving type. Using this website as a standard, I imagine that the GREENHOUSE will display about 79 kinds of plants. Through development, I think the keyword [climate] can be used as a highlight of the indoor zoning. Different plants need different environments. There is 4 display area in the space. I think the cloud would be a good starting point. It is worth mentioning that citizens can feel the area changing when people walking in the space.
Technology has played a big role in shaping the current society and its surroundings. It has affected every aspect of human life and one of them is space in the field of architecture and interior design. As technology changes, so do the practice of architecture and interior design. Previously, without technology, the value of architecture lies in the process of crafting experience in a space. But, nowadays, with the technology, the value has changed into privileging the visual aesthetics of the space or described as visual architecture. Technology opens the door to the future. It is one of the main essences that shape and change the way society behaves, as well as transcends the surrounding to suit the way society lives. Nowadays, the effect of technology has reached almost every level of society, and one of them is modern building technology. It has great implications in the creation of space in both architecture and interior design. The forms, materials, tools, and functions of the architecture evolve because of the resources that are available in the environment. The need for stronger materials to create shelter and suitable types of materials to craft the atmosphere for different functions has pushed the tool and building technology to an advanced level too. With the application of advanced materials and technologies, humans are able to generate unique experiences which would enrich the physical and psychological experience in architecture.
