Child Mind Institute

    Considering the physical appearance of the shapes, and in contrast with common straight and cubical forms of the buildings in New York, I have applied the curvilinear forms in the interiors of the Child Mind Institute. The relative characteristic of the curvature, in conjunction with personalities of children, brings a suitable harmony into the space. A straight line is often considered too serious and harsh, whereas a curved line stands for softness and flexibility. 
     
    Curvilinear forms promote feelings of happiness, calmness, and relaxation. They also elicit more pleasant emotions in comparison to straight lines and rectilinear forms. Curvilinear forms occur more often in nature, hence, making us perceive curvatures as more natural and free than straight lined forms. Therefore, such a design connects better with the function of a child healthcare facility.
