To start to understand the idea of openings (windows and doors) and their role in the formation of an interior space, you can start to look at some of these images but to really grasp them I would advise that you select (informally, in your mind) which architect you feel closely aligned with and start to examine their work in detail along with designing your own project.

Remember that design is a scholarship - and looking at the works of other architects is a way of building on what has previously been conceived - that creativity does not emerge out of thin air.

The list of architects (not exhaustive) who deal with this theme is

Louis Kahn
Tadao Ando
Jorn Utzon
Le Corbusier
BV Doshi
Charles Correa
Steven Holl
