dc.description.abstract This thesis is an investigation of the relationship between the sacred and the individual, defining a private place for prayer, meditation and personal reflection. To examine what is sacred in our world today it is necessary to understand that advancements in science and technology have changed our attitude toward spirituality. A growing number of people have moved away from communal worship and no longer identify with one specific religion. This thesis is a response to this current condition seeking moments of intervention within the daily experience; defining places for transition and pause against the fast paced trajectories of our normalized daily routine. Short periods of pause, such as waiting, can provide the opportunity for personal inward reflection and allow people to center oneself within moment. This project is seeking a means of intervention within places of waiting such as transportation terminals, hospitals and other such institutions.
