Abstract
This thesis is an attempt to inquire into the interrelationship of transparency and structure. It focuses on the unveiling the layers of transparent and translucent materials which alternately obscure and reveal a sequence of views. The project aspires to create spaces with interplay of vision and blockage by exploring the correlations of light, transparency, translucency, opacity, diffusion, reflection, floatation and lightness. It explores the crucial relationship of its bold tensile structure with the habitable spaces.
