"Bermuda has a large international community due to international business and migrant workers. This leads to cultural and cross-cultural relationships between local people and foreigners. Because of this, new families are being made that have different cultures, ethnicity, and backgrounds. Children are being born in these inter-cultural families and interacting with other children who may not have more than one background. While these children grow up, their differences can create a divided community. By creating a community youth center, the architecture can provide a space where children, parents, and the public of different backgrounds are able to learn about each other. With different cultures, there are different traditions and customs. By providing different spaces where cultural and social activities occur, it can help break the barriers that the community have so that in the future everyone can be seen as equals."
