For my happy place found on campus, I chose Starbucks. Starbucks is a happy environment where I can relax because it is where I go to escape from homework, to get warm when I am cold, and relax and catch up with friends. This place, not only has the wonderful aroma of coffee, but warm lighting, and relaxing music. Their sofas and booths make it comfortable to sit in as well. I feel that the designers and architects that designed Starbucks took this "happiness" factor into consideration and the outcome was well achieved.
For my happy space, I chose the interactive screen place in the EUC near the multicultural center. This interactive space is one where children, college students, even older adults can take a break from their busy lives and schedules and play and "act young again". It also allows people to enjoy and be happy about technology. Sometimes people can get frustrated with the advancement of technology and this space allows them to "reenjoy" it again. Not only does this place help one do this, but to feel a sort of accomplishment and competitiveness as well. This is by collecting the pebbles that drop. Perhaps competing with yourself to catch more each time, or against a friend or accompaning partner. These reasons are why I chose this space. I believe the designer who had this in mind for our campus achieved making this a happy place and somewhere where a college student can act like a kid again.
