This thesis proposes that architecture has the potential to organize experience through its sensory effects and that the body is the fundamental link between experience and the imagination.

The project in this thesis is a traveling theater. It was inspired by an interest in the intersection between architecture and contemporary theater. The theater borrows elements from traditional theaters and street theater in an effort to establish a separation between actor and spectator while also encouraging exploration of that basic theatrical relationship. There were three fundamental moves in the theater: the cubic volume; the siting and decision to travel; and the separation of the structure and skin. Each of these was a starting point for sensory effects explored in the theater.
