Mindscape, the subject of this dissertation, is a centre for creative and holistic development in Sunnyside, which will demonstrate how built environments communicate with users through their perception and sensory exploration. The topic covers various fields. The context of the study will be discussed initially, followed by the brief itself. Thereafter, the findings resulting from research conducted in the fields of developmental and environmental psychology ill be provided. Architectural theory will then be investigated. The study will conclude with the interpretation of these findings into a new architectural form, supported by design studies and analytical tools.
