Abstract
It is the intention of this thesis to explore the idea of half light, as put forward by Luis Barragan:

“Architects are forgetting the need of human beings for half-light, the sort of light that imposes a tranquility, in their living rooms as well as in their bedrooms.”

The exploration will occur through photography, writing, and architectural design. But most of all, the emphasis will be on developing a rich internal vocabular and set of intuitions, and then see what architecture emerges from these intuitions.
