Brief About The Project: 

The project represents a technique, inspired by the X-Ray machine, where light projection determines what is visible and what is not. This architectural experience is achieved by using a single beam of laser light that is directed to the interior of the building and that penetrates it through its openings, making a few specific elements of the building particularly visible to the viewer.

Different experiences also are created by variations in time, employing natural light during the day, and using laser light at night. The project is to be established over a water feature, thus taking advantage of the visual interaction between light and water.
