Abstract:People have lost a close connection with nature, which causes strong negative emotions. The pandemic has also isolated people from nature and everyone finds the importance of contact with nature increasingly. During my quarantine time, the only chance I could get in touch with nature was to see the color changing of the sky through a tiny window. This experience pushed me to explore more on this topic. My research is conducted in the hope of looking for ways to bring nature back to everyone's home and help create positive emotions. It has been proved that natural elements at home are beneficial for mental and physical health. And people are willing to close the gap with nature. The final design uses memory with nature as a resource and represents the natural environment at home, encouraging people to enjoy the beauty of nature through a new perspective.
