Architectural atmosphere is often characterised by loose descriptors which, rather than represent actual spatial qualities,depict an abstraction. Atmosphere is represented as an ephemeral quality that seems to naturally emanate from a givendesign. As a result, many refer to atmosphere as unable to be documented using traditional media. In response, thisthesis seeks to examine the architectural representation of atmosphere, and identify an effective method of codifyingand representing specific atmospheric qualities by examining the specific phenomenon of interruption, taking thecontemporary workplace as its site of investigation. Its larger aim, is the creation of a notational system that betterenables the design of atmosphere, specifically the design of atmospheres of interruption.
