In a society that focuses mostly on the visual, we want to explore how the lack of sight can actually be seen as a benefit to experience the world instead of a disadvantage. We believe that if we take the needs of people with visual impairment as our guideline, it will give us a more connected relationship to sensory experiences to all types of users which we think are lacking in contemporary architecture.
The goal of this master thesis is to create a meeting point between the seeing and people with visual impairment. A place that merges the two separate worlds between people with sight and people with blindness and visual impairment together through production and art. The proposal is a Cultural Centre, includes exhibition galleries, workshops, restaurant/café, outdoor performance space, auditorium and offices.
