The different degrees of domestic exteriority were modulated over time through openings or closures, with one defining moment, when the envelope was released from its load bearing functions.
From a distance, the modernist façade has multiple readings and Le Corbusier’s thick diaphragmed ‘fourth wall’ is not the same as Mies’ fine curtain wall.
Contemporary domesticity plays with the creation of thresholds to extend the liveable domain outside the envelope.
The three-dimensionality facilitates the construction of liveable spaces within a thick façade.
