In this chapter the author uses architecture as the medium with which to explore ritual. The chapter's author demonstrates the ability of defined spaces to be performative events in themselves. Using comparative analysis, he explains his experiments with two different course structures and projects. Real-world constraints on his students dictated the more successful one for investigating the phenomenon of the ritual eventfulness, apprehensive effect, and even abundant autonomy of buildings, all ways in which our own creations come to structure our reality.
