Abstract
Time, Experience, Memory

Through experience we are conscious of time. Through time, our experiences become memories, influencing both conscious and unconscious thought. It is through our five senses; touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste, that these experiences are gathered. Humans are also born with inherent knowledge that our species has collected from generation to generation. This inherent knowledge, also called the collective unconscious, has a direct effect on the way we perceive experiences from our senses. The challenge of this thesis is to awaken the individual by interweaving the experiential qualities of the structure with the memories from the individuals' collective unconscious creating a space that offers a place to pause and reflect on life.
