Kyokai: a japanese technique for articulating space
"Between light and shadow, between transparant and opaque,
between interior and exterior, between artificial and natural,
between object and empty space, between trouth and falsehood-
if we can open these intermediary zones, give them spatial form,
and make them into something we can experience,
our world will undoubtedly be the richer for it."
"When you draw a starting point and an ending point on a plan
and then connect the dots, a wall is created. This basic function of architecture
may indeed be the method in which this ellipses that occurs
in the building a structure
and as a result of clearly delineating space is employed."
