Architecture is the thoughtful making of space. The continual renewal of architecture comes
from the changing concepts of space. - Louis Kahn, 1957
Planes are one of the simplest architectural elements that can create spaces. By exploring the length, width and height we can allow people to understand our intent. With the minimum that one needs, we can express clarity and lightness.

We need to carve out the space within which users can feel free to explore, pushing aside the pointless navigation and dead end processes. To build a space with a sense of intrigue is what keeps the wanderer interested, not knowing what to find next in the corner. A space that makes them think.

The sun does not realize how wonderful it is until after a room is made. - Louis Kahn.
The use of natural light helps create an exciting environment. Sculpting the light the way we like it gives us full control. The positive effect of natural light on one's mood confirms the need to bring as much natural light into the space as possible.
The vertical planes oppose to the conventional ones not only by their lightness but also by their generous openings.
The narrative and sequencing of connections and boundaries are described as the poetry of movement.
