The complex oculus and other openings of the inner dome in S. Chiara, Bra, define residual space, which is open in order to elaborate space and manipulate light.
The detachment of the inner and outer window openings in Aalto's Imatra Church similarly modifies light and space. The use of this method is unique in recent architecture.
