The City of Brampton, Ontario is one of Canada's fastest growing and most diverse communities. Today, 40% of Brampton's population is comprised of emigrates from foreign countries. These diverse communities must co-exist if a truly multi-cultural society is to be achieved. This thesis is "committed to the preservation, development and celebration of the cultural heritages of the diverse ethnic communities of Brampton." 'Carabram,' an annual Multi-Cultural Festival, has long been a Brampton tradition. However, currently Carabram has neither a permanent infrastructure nor a central location for its celebration. This thesis promotes that there be a unifying place for this celebration of diversity. Visitors will gain a better understanding of cultural differences and learn to appreciate these differences. It is a place where various cultures can co-exist and a place where cultural individualism is encouraged. Its main objective is to create an exhibition arena that celebrates Brampton's diversity.
