Shaffer Art Building at Syracuse University is a space where students of different departments in the College of Visual and Performing Arts spend most of their time in classes for hours, sometimes the whole day.

However, the industrial and monotonous design of the space does not promote creativity, and is often thought of as suffocating or stressful by students who spend most of their week in the building. The lack of direct sunlight, lack of comfortable spots for students to discuss and relax, and the lack of comfort in classrooms diminishes students' ability to think artistically and to be productive.

To help increase comfort for students' experience in Shaffer Art Building, the College of Visual and Performing Arts and Syracuse University should increase the amount of plants and comfortable seatings to help student feel at ease during academic hours.

Varies scientific researches have shown that green leafy plants help de-stress, boost mood, and enhance creative thinking. Adding plants to the spaces in Shaffer Art Building will not only help student feel more relaxed, but also increase productivity and creativity.
