This thesis explores the potential relationship between temporary architecture and belonging. It poses the question of whether design can accept the transient nature of humans and their surrounding environment while maintaining a sense of emotional connection to spaces around them. Starting with the basic definitions of the conditions of temporality and belongingness, this thesis will explore the common ground that they share. Their relationship will be tested through the multi-phased design of a Media Village for the 2024 Los Angeles Summer Olympic bid. The design will look beyond the sports event to consider the potential afterlife of the project. As the environmental and human needs for the site shift, the building will adapt to reflect these fluid changes while seeking to maintain a sense of connection with its users.
