R0LE OF LIGHT, SHADE AND SHADOW IN THE SPACE.
TRANSPARENCY AND MOVEMENT IN ARCHITECTURE

SPACE AND CIRCULATION
*ARCHITECTURAL MEASURES AND ELEMENTS
In general physical terms, transparency is considered as a property defined by the amount of light passing through a material. It is also, the capability of seeing through an otherwise solid object.
In architecture, we sometimes assume that transparency makes us perceive different spaces simultaneously, creating different perceptions and sensations inside or outside the space.
To achieve transparency through a building which is made out of solid elements, it is important to consider two aspects:
permeability and reflection.
is found in nature in every living organism. Even static elements change with time and offer a sense of movement when exposed to elements such
as wind, rain, or temperature.
In my project, movement is sought with the construction of perspectival space. A combination of differentiated elements along with a sequence of different spaces suggests a kind of architectural motion.
*A design center that offers the possibility to assemble different art forms under one roof.
*The building offers rooms and spaces for performing arts namely, creating, designing etc. It also provides halls for exhibitions of art.
*A workshop for students and a bookstore offer diverse services for all visitors.
*The ground level stays open and offers shelter and shaded places for outside exhibitions.
Although space is usually defined by solid and static boundaries, the space here makes an attempt to embody with its architecture some of the surrounding conditions.
The public space of the streets extends into a piazza that leads to the interior of the building with a sequence of spaces, rendering a gradual transition from public to private. The path continues through the entire building; taking a person from the ground level to the top in a smooth easy way.
The project contains two enclosed staircases that allow for vertical circulation at all levels.
The enclosed spaces are defined by independent architectural elements, and offer different conditions of scale, height, light and openness.
SPACE AND CIRCULATIONS
When conceptually approaching the site, one has to take into consideration the importance and the impact of the Seaside Road itself, among many other aspects which will be explained thoroughly.
Among the other aspects would be the sea, the orientation of the space, the role of light and shadow within the space, the existing skin or façade and the manipulation of it.
In my design, such louvers or any other type of intelligent materials may be use on the facade to create a comfortable interior space.
Movement is promoted with continuity, sequence and flow.
– Elements reappear in a consecutive manner.
A following of an event after another in a logical order and at a different time.
A continuous and smooth movement that may carry a directional change caused by external forces.

Shade & Shadow
Permeability - A material property of allowing a fl uid to pass through a porous space. In architecture, it can mean having boundaries that function as
filters rather than solid confines; or openings that permit things to pass through or to be seen through. This concept permits persons within and outside a
space to perceive the immediate physical world around themselves.
Reflection - Defined as to cast back light or to show an image of an object or surface (mirror effect). Reflection helps to give a sense of transparency in solid objects, making them disappear or merge with the surrounding space. As a result, the building appears to have a sense of lightness.
Project Elements & Areas:
In my project, architectural measures and elements are chosen to ensure transparency and movement in the building.
Transparency is important in order to achieve the relationship between sea and city. A glass facade permits a visual relationship with the exterior. Every architectural element is structured to allow lightness, permeability and reflection. The building has an open ground floor, where people can walk through in an easy circulation and achieve all their needs without any barriers.
The architectural elements for the project: platforms, escalators, columns, private workshop boxes are used to define the interior spaces.
