There is abundance, but also a great amount of restraint when it comes to sight in the Vertical Glass house. The abundance is in glass floors, which create a sense of openness, and restraint in being blocked off from the outside and only having one sky view. Each floor almost serves as a filter that one is looking through, making it tougher to see the focal point. Each of the lines in my model represents a view of a key element from that point - one of a structural component, such as a beam or joist, a view upwards, of the staircase, or through a slit.
