    • Two major endeavors of modern architecture are fulfilled here, not as unconscious outgrowths of advances in engineering but as conscious realizations of an artistic intent:

    • b) And there is the EXTENSIVE TRANSPARENCY that permits interior and exterior to be simultaneously, achieving a variety of levels of references or of points of references and simultaneity - in short, the conception of SPACE-TIME.
