This thesis aims to apply principles of gene therapy to the design of scientific research interior space.
Most of modern research institutes have rigid settings for carrying out experiment while the atmosphere for culturing thinking process is neglected. In evolution theory, gene selection and recombination enables organisms to express stronger phenotype in response to environment forces to promote their own identity and therefore survive. In the interior context, DNA is comprised of objects, light, texture, and sound, and the selection force being the physical and emotional connection between the space and the users. By analyzing and re-combining essential interior elements, the new lab "genome" will be dynamically adapted to the requirement for conducting research as well as the need of the researchers', making the scientific research interior a hub for proliferation of the life sciences intellectually and biologically.
