Abstract
This document is organized in two sections. The first section is the thesis, "Exploratory Steps" which shows how visitors explore and orient themselves in exhibition environments, thus allowing intrinsic elements of the exhibition to alter the chosen path. The second section, through the topic of equine therapy, seeks to demonstrate human behavioral patterns related to circulation, and guidance and explores them through an open floor plan. Through the thesis and the proposed project, the paper suggests that designers can strategically position elements such as displays, artwork, and text to create a hierarchy to explore the potential for spatial attraction.
