Calligraphy, light and making were the starting issues to consider for this project. By using the quartz as a generator, the light reflection properties as well as the mineral structure of the quartz could be utilized as a baseboard for the biomimetic tectonic light modulator. The convergence of the different diagrids as well as other calligraphy created the different elements of the light modulator. The diagrids were organized by the use of a regular grid. The integration of a regular grid solidified the structure as well as organized the musicality created by the different materials. The vertical elements act as a regulator and connection along with the horizontal elements, thus allowing the diagrids to become the form that regulates the light passage. By utilizing different materials the light was able to be utilized in different ways. The lighter sections became the marker that organized the other sections.
