Description/Abstract

"Properties such as light, scale, and proportion form spaces that effect out perception of a place, but light is most important. The creation of a space and the sequence to reach an area, according to these properties, will affect positively the contemplative state of mind of an individual or a community. The application of said properties, but most importantly light, through the construction of view, forms, materials, textures, and the use of colors will create a narrative that will encounter and achieve individually or collectively a contemplative state of mind.'
