architecture has the capacity to shape human interaction and re-qualify civic engagement. Buildings, landscapes, and infrastructures may uniquely translate progressive ideas and concepts with clear and inspirational vision. Architecture, in dialogue with community, has the ability to catalyze actions, to organize the flow of territories, to recognize struggle, tragedy, and accomplishment... to create space that enriches the purpose of a people. The boundaries and thresholds of space, whether public
or private, inform one's perception of privacy, access, and atmosphere. Open
is a mode of connection and interaction at any scale.
