This thesis will focus on designing a space for the "spirit"; the nonphysical, or invisible emanations of a person that compose human nature. My interest is in designing a space, universally appealing in effect, that will enhance the human spirit and raise the awareness of our ability to transcend, and create a connection with others and self.¹ This thesis will create a place that heightens or speaks to an "alternative state of mind in which one is overcome by, or perceives the presence, insight, or action of forces beyond self-limited consciousness. ² This thesis design will investigate and create a place that allows people to connect with their individual spirit. This space will provide a place that appeals to all views of spirituality so that visitors will explore and enhance their own definitions of spirit, gaining a deeper understanding of a universal humanity. ¹ Barrie, Tom, Julio Bermudez, Anat Geva, and Randall Teal.
