In the module the objective is to find and define an existing space - interior or intimate outdoor space where you believe is some hidden potentiality.

The task is to recognize an ordinary, forgotten space and transform it into an extraordinary spatial sensation. Identifying and learning to use the tools to manipulate the spatial atmosphere are the key objectives of the module.
