2, Please can you add some data or professional charts or something else to present
3，Here is an assessment criteria
1, Demonstrate critical understanding of historical and contemporary debates within interior and spatial design based on a coherent and detailed analysis of key aspects of practice and theory (Knowledge).
2, Carry out sustained, systematic critical/practical research, using relevant resources and appropriate methods of analysis, enquiry and experimentation, and demonstrating the distinction between your ideas and those of others (Enquiry).
3, Apply appropriate processes, skills and methods to referencing (Process).
4, Use effective communication and presentation skills appropriate to theoretical and practical outcomes in order to articulate complex ideas and arguments convincingly and clearly (Communication, Realisation).
I think we are missing: sustained, systematic critical/practical research and appropriate methods of analysis, enquiry and experimentation, and demonstrating the distinction between your ideas and those of others
4, you can improve what I marked, with your psychology knowledge. If it is hard for you to
write about art, then you left it for me, but please finish this paper before 21th ,06:59am in the
morning (American time) , so that I can have time to review and finish.
批注 [MOU1]: All the comments are my personal
opinions based on the Dissertation Handbook(which
I sent you in the beginning) and my tutors’
suggestions. You also can read the handbook and
have your own thoughts;(Some of the text I wrote
in the beginning are also wrong) I’ve sited and
highlighted the Dissertation handbook texts in
red, which must be revised. I hope these can help
you, so that we can write a good paper.

PROBLEM： How to tap on psychological knowledge for effective and better housing
Psychology, architecture, interior design, wellbeing, housing
Contemporaneously, research suggests that people spend more than 70% of their lives
indoors. Thus, to ensure that people are more comfortable while indoors, modern architectural
sector primarily focuses on producing designers with the background and capability to
develop a comprehensive psychological intervention vision that accounts for all the design
parameters and identifying and accounting for all the considerations that are to be made
during the housing design. A critical architectural role is providing built environments
capable of sustaining its entire occupant’s psychological needs and well-being, a role that has
become critical in the modern era. Thus, this paper will offer an in-depth discussion on the
core psychological elements of interior housing design that interior designers can bring to
residents, and how these elements can be harnessed in the design of better, more comfortable
and enjoyable houses.

1. Defining Interior Design
Although the term ‘interior design’ is very common, a more definitive definition for the
concept is yet to be created. Thus, in this paper, the working definition for the term is that it is
the art and science involved in enhancing a building’s and structures’ interior spaces. The
main of interior design of housing is providing a healthier and aesthetically pleasing
environment for its actual, expected, probable or imagined users. Additionally, as a discipline,
interior design entails studying the art and science of interior design. Accordingly, interior
designers are people who plan, research, manage and coordinates interior design projects
aimed at enhancing the buildings’ and structures’ interior spaces.
Contemporaneously, an interior spaces’ foundation has become a fundamental concept for
exploration and understanding as this knowledge is critical to helping and better equipping
users to harness the spaces that are available for them. Usually, even though interior designers
may have the will and resources to change these available interior spaces, effectively
achieving such a resolve and desire is often hard. A primary reason for this challenge in
interior design is that designers are often limited to working within the applicable rooms’ or
spaces’ physical confines and boundaries. To fill in this void, modern designers are
increasingly relying on light, color and patterns. First, natural or artificial light is increasingly

becoming one of the most critical aspects of any spatial designs since other elements would
not be able satisfactorily achieve their full architectural design function without light. Mood
lighting, accent lighting and task lighting are the major categories of lighting used in the
architectural field. Interior designers use mood lighting to add ambience, accent lighting to
emphasize objects and task lighting to define purpose.
Secondly, color is increasingly become an extreme element available for interior designers
to master and harness for their trade. When properly leveraged, color can help designers to
define unity, create mood and alter how users of a space or room perceive its size.
Additionally, when combined with light and color, patterns provide benefits offered by
texture in that it can significantly add a visual appeal to any space where it is used.
Essentially, modern designers create patterns in rooms by using repetitive designs, and can be
found on many of the accessories that are used in modern houses, including fabrics, rugs, soft
furnishings, and wallpaper. Furthermore, there are different types of patterns, including in
terms of their stripes, prints, motifs, and prints (organic, pictorial and geometric).
2. Definition of a ‘home’
The term used to describe a pattern of activity and peoples’ role in such activities and in a
particular environment is domesticity. Additionally, the term also describes a home or family
life, especially when pertaining to the quality or state if being domestic or domesticated.
Whereas any form of domestic inhabitation and physical access are critical approaches used
by people to connect to their homes, it is also apparent that psychological ideas and
connections are equally profound.

According to Clare Cooper, a psychologist and architect drawing from psychoanalyst Carl
Jung’s work, a home is a shared archetypal experience that enables people to express their
experiences, perspectives, ideas and emotions through symbolic languages. His definition is
strongly based on Carl Jung’s ideas that home encompasses an amalgamation of a strong
tower and sheltering cavern. For instance, Clare Cooper relies on Carl Jung’s symbolic
interpretation of homes to explore people’s desires in their homes and the impact of these
desires on the people’s psychic elements.
