Learning from Psychology: Rehabilitation in Home
The main aim of the design is to create a sense of belonging and integration among the users as a way to rehabilitate. The Site is chosen near to Elazığ Mental Health Disorders Hospital to create programmatic relations and rehabilitate people in their homes. Through a common garden with Cumhuriyet Highschool, producing their food is encouraged while students learn the basics of growing food. Both integration of the Site and programmatic differentiation is reached by alley passing through it. The mass settlement is designed accordingly to minimize any damage to existing green areas.
