This thesis will investigate how architecture can heighten the experience of obtaining information in a sensual environment. As such, I will explore the use of perception as a physical and mental tool to gather and share information of one's sensual environment. I have looked at perception into two parts, Activity and Passivity. Activity is defined as obtaining information of an environment through sensory experience focusing on sight, sound and touch. Passivity is the way in which our minds filter and render the physical environment into memorable experiences. By reestablishing a connection to the sensory environment we open ourselves to an opportunity to share our experiences with others. This project will be a unique information center that explores the concept of gathering the sensual information of a particular area and analyzing said information to formulate characteristics of place.
