Abstract
Architecture possesses the potential to

elevate one's intellectual and visceral

perceptions from unconscious passings to

informed events. The quest for creating events

involves an intermediary which promotes the

transition from a casual involvement to an

active engagement. This intermediary role is

that of the experience. By imposing a

presence, or creating a sense of place,

architecture awakens the mind and stirs the

soul. Doing this, the architecture is raised to a

higher order, revealing a significance that is

true, as something more, not as something

else. The making of events through the

experience fulfills the aspirations of

architecture to unearth the events that dwell in

the interaction between place and occasion.
