Meditation is known as a practice of bringing oneself to a peaceful state of mind. It will become more interesting to more people if they can find its meaning in many more things around them.

In this study, the roles which repetition plays in meditation will be used in architecture in many ways. Repetition can create the visual rhythm of shape, form, pattern, and space. The transformable ideal of repetition changes to become an architectural space. This project attempts to discus meditation in terms of architectural studies, and how the structures of materials together with their lighting elements can create a space for meditation.
