In order to generate a sense of community in a society that has alienated its individuals and cultural groups from each other, architecture's combined abilities must be realized. It can attack a passive, indifferent attitude by confronting the user directly, inspiring an active and reflective awareness of the surrounding environment. Active involvement imprints an individual's mind and develops a greater communal frame of reference through an up-close and shared setting. Through the creation of a distinct and perceptively awakening environment, architecture encourages the active participation which generates individual learning, growth, and understanding, bringing together community and celebrating life through togetherness.
