Abstract

Interior Designers use the process of evidence-based design to create spaces that are successful to not only the individual’s mind and imagination, but allows for the overall function to become lucrative. Evidence-based design is the process of constructing a building or physical environment based on scientific research to achieve the best possible outcome. This type of design is not the product, but the process in which designers use to answer why and how things are accomplished. One of the most evident tools in design is collecting and gathering evidence. Both Primary Beauty Corporate Office project as well as thesis project “The Unknown Waste: Research Facility and Sea Turtle Hospital” incorporates the method of evidence-based design. Primary Beauty used the method of evidence-based design by integrating research on clean and sustainable ways through building construction, as well as a new concept of integrating multiple areas in one singular space. The Unknown Waste: Research Facility and Sea Turtle Hospital utilizes the method of evidence-based design by understanding the multiple building types under one roof, as well as the concept of designing something that did not previously exist. Overall, it is important for designers to use the process of evidence-based design to not only create a space that thrives, but provides a reason as to why something is created in the manner it is.

The Unknown Waste: Research Facility and Sea Turtle Hospital

Interior Designers use the process of evidence-based design to create spaces that are successful to not only the individual’s mind and imagination, but allows for the overall function to become lucrative. Evidence-based design is the process of constructing a building or physical environment based on scientific research to achieve the best possible outcome. This type of design is not the product, but the process in which designers use to answer why and how things are accomplished. One of the most evident tools in design is collecting and gathering evidence. Both Primary Beauty Corporate Office project as well as thesis project “The Unknown Waste: Research Facility and Sea Turtle Hospital” incorporates the method of evidence-based design. Primary Beauty used the method of evidence-based design by integrating research on clean and sustainable ways through building construction, as well as a new concept of integrating multiple areas in one singular space. The Unknown Waste: Research Facility and Sea Turtle Hospital utilizes the method of evidence-based design by understanding the multiple building types under one roof, as well as the concept of designing something that did not previously exist. Overall, it is important for designers to use the process of evidence-based design to not only create a space that thrives, but provides a reason as to why something is created in the manner it is.
