Actual exercise

Horizontal planes made out of any planar hard material like thin plywood, Mount board or acrylic sheet can be put to use. The horizontal planes are to be combined with vertical planes to make one surface. Various geometrical solid forms can be added into it. All these combined surfaces should be viewed as empty spaces from other side. Now holding this model horizontally will give rise to a synonymous architectural space.

Design Application

Horizontal planes at different levels combined with vertical planes "look" visually interesting.
It divides the flat space into smaller zones or clusters; simultaneously they create headroom below it. Domes, pyramids and cones or any other solid form give rise to different kind of volumes and empty spaces below it. Architecturally these solids are interesting externally whereas voids are "useful" internally. A visual designer needs to be Trained to simultaneously process the images of the external solid shape and its corresponding internal empty space.

Retrospective analysis

Internal spaces and external spaces can further be coloured and applied with linear graphics. Various textures applied externally can also make the positive form more solid.
