Transcultural Education: Building Understanding through Architecture
More InformationShow full item record
Architecture has the innate ability to control the environment in which it creates, so it presents itself as a tool for creating desired outcomes. This desired outcome is the change of social climate through Transcultural Understanding. With the use of qualitative observation analyses, methods of influencing cultural perception will be studied and applied to the project. Children’s minds are at a malleable state, so creating an educational center which emphasizes activities and interactions to promote inter-cultural interactions can result in transcultural Understanding as a learned social practice.
