Abstract: 

Contemporary society's expectations have evolved beyond their

current environments. In order to reinvigorate our surroundings, we

must re-evaluate the standard method of creating architectural

space, from process to product. In an attempt to achieve this

reformation of design, inspiration can be drawn from concepts

and practices in contemporary theatre since the 20th century.

Theatre and architecture share a common goal of communicating

to their audience. The existence and success of both these art

forms vitally depends on the human body.

By paralleling concepts in contemporary theatre and architecture,

this thesis will explore the integral components to creating

holistically experiential architectural space. The corresponding

design project is devised from an accumulative synthesis of the

theatrical concepts examined in this text. These architectural

moments consider potential social and spatial relationships

encountered by the audience in an interactive and sensually

stimulating environment, and in turn how their response can have

a transformative effect on that space.
