dc.description.abstract <p>Threshold is a fundamental concept in architecture, denoting inside, outside, and the transition between. It therefore implies movement. The concept of threshold is used in this work to develop a mental health recovery center - a place of healing and reactivation. The spectrum of mental health states one experiences throughout the healing process is acknowledged and considered holistically. The movement between states is studied in parallel with spatial issues of threshold: pause, movement, transition, and encounter. The proposed architecture is generated through an understanding of dynamic psychological and emotional conditions. I propose this empathetic approach to architecture and, in particular, to the design of a healing environment in tandem with a reconsideration of contemporary mental health treatment; threshold is central to both. The document provides background information about mental health, various attempts at innovation, systems of care giving, and the site of the proposed interventions. The architectural design is described in detail based upon the aforementioned concept of threshold.</p>
