Abstract
This project is an investigation of qualitative space, a space that is more subtly defined than by street number or rigidly specified edges. A qualitative space is one that engages the imagination in the act of understanding.

This urban room is an open, unrestricted space in the middle of the city, defined on 3 sides by a group of auditoriums. The space maintains and enhances the role of the site within the city, a place that can accomodate festivals and gatherings.
