Between surface and space
Architecturally, a window is a space of reflection and projection, but also a device that allows capturing and representing the complex interactions between the inside and outside. A window can generate a set of spatial images that affect the imaginary and further proceed to dematerialize the real. The interest of this project is to expose and inhabit the space of reflection as an architectural medium generated from a dimensionless image. The complex and ethereal space created is always changing and redefining itself due to its translucent, imaginary nature. Several thresholds are used to guide the flow through the space and further generate enclosures. The objects of reflection, now become lightweight veils, are ubiquitous objects that exist psychically in one place and operate virtually in another, a direct consequence of the de-localization process.
