Written narrative has the ability to enchant the imagination of a person into a heightened emotional state, all without being directly visual. How, when existing almost entirely within a visual sense, does architecture and interior space so often lack this quality? How can I design spaces that will move me with as much impact as a few words on a page? Spurring from a frustration in attempting to understand my own design motivations as a student of interior architecture, this research grew from two seeds of interest planted throughout my life; an affinity with the visually artistic and the capturing mystery of written narrative.  How can the translation of written narrative help to enhance the visual representation of interior architecture?
