So that we have considered that there is transparent situation inside the complex. Secondly light is a very important element for the purpose of White U, that’s why we took it as a factor to use in the model.

To work on light condition we have played with the density of the layers. And for the aim of indicating that transparent situation which is very dominant in the curved area of the structure, we have used framed elements.
