Abstract

The goal of this thesis is to explore how architecture can play a role in democracy. The traditional “Architecture of Democracy” is a branch of neoclassical architecture called Jeffersonian. This type of architecture is modeled after Greek temples which is not the inclusive space you would expect an architecture of democracy to be modeled after. I believe the imposing, exclusive architecture has played a part in the current state of affairs between representatives and citizens and the solution lies in creating a new Architecture of Democracy based on the principles of democracy.
