:: SL-WEEK 22: Transparency

Transparency

Back in 20th century, architecture was freed from structural walls and could surround its façades in glass. It was named the International Style. Natural light bathes the interior of buildings and the constructions became visually ‘lighter’. Nowadays, glass is been used as coating resulting in mere transparent boxes enveloping walls and windows, losing its best quality: transparency.
Every week Sylvain Landry proposes a theme for a photo and this time the subject is ‘Transparency’. Visit his blog to see other interpretations.

Antes, no século XX, a arquitetura libertou-se das paredes estruturais e pôde circundar suas fachadas com vidro. Foi chamado de Estilo Internacional. A luz natural banha o interior dos edifícios e as construções se tornaram visualmente ‘mais leves’. Hoje em dia, o vidro está sendo usado como revestimento resultando em meras caixas transparentes que envolvem paredes e janelas, perdendo sua melhor qualidade: transparência.
