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.
