Empirical Explorations

Language of the Unconscious

Psychodynamic Therapy and Research Centre

This thesis presents an architectural exploration of the shift from ‘the monologue of therapy’ to a ‘therapeutic dialogue’. A series of ‘haptic experiences’ are staged in nearly 49 therapy spaces or, ‘clouds’ that facilitate psychoanalysis for a viable research beyond just clinical treatment for the mental wailing of the ‘sane’.

Keywords: Therapeutic Architecture, Mental Health, Psychoanalysis, Humanistic Parametricism.
