Master of Architecture (MArch)
Andrea H. Adams
The pursuit of architectural discourse is indeed a search for a better material existence of space serving the immaterial. Meaningful space should outreach beyond its actuality, satisfying more than the basic pragmatist. It should generate an experience evoking appropriate sequence of emotions, expressing the current life and culture.
Light should surely be the subject of the discourse then, because that space conveys most of its intentionality through altering the behavior of light, while we also contributes to the alteration with our inhabitation. Like a silent speech, Light doesn’t merely conduct the spatial actuality; it also conveys the emotions attached through the performance in time.
This set of work is focus on being in light of light. By understanding its behavior rid of information, a framework can be created to contain light for one to notice, to celebrate its presence.
