dc.description.abstractWorld conflicts largely stem from a lack of understanding among people. Ignorance between cultures often breeds separation and, at times, hostility. In response to this lack of interaction between people, this thesis explores the potential that exists at nodes of convergence. The international airport provides a lens for this exploration. At its core, the airport terminal is a mechanism for movement. Its purpose has traditionally been to capture, filter, and organize people as they progress towards their destination. This thesis takes advantage of the condition of the airport to promote an agenda of fostering human interaction. The design will focus on the journey of the individual as a means of enhancing the collective experience.en_US
