Horizontal verses vertical, ground verses sky, column verses beam. The juxtaposition of the two is an architectural relationship that every building explores, whether it be metaphorically or literally. Here we see this relationship abstracted through the literal phenomenon of transparency (the polycarbonate facade) and the insertion of various sands into that plane to create a "material index." This process is an example of spatial stratification because the horizontal layers of deposited sands make the vertical striations, and thus we see the convergence of the horizontal and vertical.

I'd like to think that by virtue of contrast, I also contribute to this "material index," but that may be a stretch. Yet, this relationship can also apply to fashion as an outfit too becomes a "material index" that if successfully curated, is spatially stratified from head to toe with materials or garments that balance both horizontal and vertical planes.
