SUB CULTURAL RIFT: AN AFFIRMATION ON AMERICAN SOCIAL CONFLICT
MetadataПоказать полную информацию
Whether in equilibrium or imbalance, social conflict is inherent in any dynamic society, particularly in American culture. More recently it is apparent that social conflict in America is entering a phase of uncompromising imbalance where ideological differences between opposing social entities and their actions have created a noticeable ‘rift’ within the American strata. As a perpetual force, conflict is part of the social fabric that creates a dynamic society, however the effects created by any internal conflict can be extremely detrimental to entities on either side, more importantly to the society in its entirety. The result is an open wound in the social realm of the American culture that is being further contaminated. This thesis looks to materialize American social conflict in the form of an inhabitable monument by means of externalized social experiences to promote National awareness. It will seek to acknowledge the current state of American social strife and the underlying issues prevalent in the American social construct. Socially driven architecture will provide a stark reality regarding underlying American social issues for the public to reflect and meditate on the realities of modern America as well as their own lives as they begin to identify with those afflicted.
