dc.description.abstractDue to the increase of global flows, people, products and information are moving faster than ever before. Transit stations in turn have largely lost the ability to connect the traveller with the local environment, evolving into bland and homogeneous spaces. By introducing a means to pause within these flows, it becomes possible to once again engage in and absorb the surroundings that have become ignored and disregarded. This study aims to reconnect user and the local context through an interior design of a multi-modal transit interchange. Dance and human movement are used as a methodology to unite user with place, ultimately informing new programs and spatial arrangements. The resulting interior design is able to foster place identity, allowing the user to slow their movements in order to create meaningful social, cultural and contextual connections within a transit space.en
