Description/Abstract

This thesis contends that architecture has the potential to script a hyper specific spiritual experience catered toward both the individual and the collective. Architecture can invoke an essence of spirituality regardless of one’s own affiliation towards religion. It is my contention that there is potential for design in architecture within agency to perform the thesis, a contemplative space for individuals with or without a religious identity. Architecture can perform as a device to invoke a sense of spirituality in individuals that would not consider themselves neither religious, nor spiritual - by providing a place of awe, contemplation, and mysticism.
