dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis is to develop an awareness of the disappearing natural resource of dark skies through the design of a project that fosters this awareness. The goal of the research is to re-envision how we as humans conventionally experience the nightscape and to forge a new meaningful human connection to darkness. By addressing and understanding the experience and value of dark skies, architecture can better be used as a tool for observation, creating a deeper appreciation of experience and phenomena. To accomplish these goals, this thesis proposes creating a place that will enhance our thoughts and perceptions about darkness. This thesis project explores the human connection to the night sky and darkness by using architecture as the lens and device for understanding the synchronicity between phenomena, perception and time.en_US
