The intention and idea of my project is dedicated to overcome existing stigmata in
connection with treatment facilities for mental disorders. The aim is to put an architectural
statement in terms of psychological treatment clinics in the center of Graz, to dispel
such prejudices. The difference to the design of allready known psychiatric day treatment institutions
is, that my design thinks the topic in a complete different way. The psychiatric day treatment
center also implements commercial functions. A mixing of patients and ordinary
people should take place in my design proposal. This design should propose no single
solution , but stimulate the discourse about mental illness and create space for the mentally
ill , where they feel comfortable.
