What I experienced, was not a conceptual space. Was truly space made manifest.
When this structure, with its simple geometrical order is lit by the light, introduced by an oculus 9 mt in diameter at the apex of the dome, architectural space truly is made manifest. This condition of matter and light can never be experenced in nature.
"Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light. Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms; cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the great primary forms which light reveals to advantage; the image of these is distinct and tangible within us without ambiguity. It is for this reason that these are beautiful forms, the most beautiful forms."
