As human beings our perception of the space is defined through physical materials andlight. Light is revealed to the human eye through interaction with other materials, whilematerials often depend on light to justify their existence. They need each other to exist andthey can’t be separated, being interlinked to a point that each one defines the other andtherefore light became a material itself.Light is a material we use as one of the primary elements of our architectural designAlso, the permeability of other materials selected for our design contributes to enhancinglight and defining space. Through light the space fruition change during different times ofthe day, month, and year – it becomes active or passive - often creating space withoutboundaries that flows inside out.
