This thesis will investigate the ability of architecture to activate and enhance the typical experience of the city from the perspective of the pedestrian. Through a series of framed sites distributed in specific locations throughout the historic downtown Knoxville areas, the city becomes a stage set waiting to be activated. The pieces can be explored sequentially, or by chance, allowing the pedestrian varied modes of viewer ship depending on approach, perspective, framing, location, scale, light, etc.
