"We put thirty spokes together and call it a wheel: 

But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the wheel depends. 

We turn clay to make a vessel;

 But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the vessel depends. 

We pierce doors and windows to make a house; 

And it is on these spaces where there is nothing that the usefulness of the house depends.Therefore just as we take advantage of what is we should recognize the usefulness of what is not. "


Tao Tê Ching  

The above quote helps imagine the shared boundary between inside and outside where the inside is enclosed by surrounding surfaces. This project has a sequence of steps that start with a shape to delineate inside and outside followed by steps that seek to capture a cast of this shared boundary. Colour will be added further on as a way of delineating inside and outside as seen through drawings using orthographic projection. The outcome of this first project is the entry point to develop the relationship between inside and outside, solid and void  

FORM + CAST +CUT

"Designing from the outside in, as well as the inside out, creates necessary tensions, which help to make architecture. Since the inside in different from the outside, the wall-the point of change -becomes an architecture event. Architecture occurs at the meeting of interior and exterior forces of use and space…architecture as the wall between the inside and the outside becomes the spatial record of this resolution and its drama"
