Using different materials to define boundaries and thresholds engaging the senses of those occupying the spaces, as well as bring natural light and nature into the building. The use of materials such as glass, stone, vegetation, concrete, fabrics, even light allow for occupants to have a variety of spaces. Triggering these senses, and engaging the human body at different scales gives the users to have multiple functions for different spaces.< Less
