Juhui Lee is a Korean spatial designer studying interior design as a postgraduate at Glasgow school of art. She studied interior design in Korea and then explored more about spatial design in Scotland. She is interested in experiencing design in a space where people can gain new experiences and memory depending on concepts.
So far, the project she’s been working on has been about mental health, weather, and co-working space at the university.
The project was inspired by many people coming out to the park and enjoying the sun when the weather was good. The fact that people enjoy the sun certainly positively affects people physically and emotionally, but unfortunately, there are not many days to enjoy the sun in Glasgow. Nevertheless, what if we could experience the emotions and feelings like a sunny day inside? The project investigated whether people can be affected positive emotional effects of the sun and if they can feel similar vibes when it’s a sunny day in the newly designed space. In the long run, this place could be a healing space for people in Glasgow. Also, this project considered creating an atmosphere of outside to inside as an interiority perspective. The study suggests a healing place for people in Glasgow during winter. Therefore, people living in Glasgow can enjoy the feeling and experience like they are under the sun despite its bad weather.
It is time to enjoy the sunny day and escape from a rainy and cloudy day!
The concept of the project is escapism. The reason is this project suggests a space for people in Scotland to enjoy the sunny day atmosphere during the winter.
