In 1999 Pouchulu developed a study plan titled Essential Spatial Programme, ESP, focused in the exploration of architectural principles. New configurations were established by identifying tacit architectural gestures, surrounding discussions of virtual nature, re-interpreting both classical and modern movements in order to analysse essential principles and psychological behaviour. The Architectural Fictions, Part I explores architectural forms in relation with a fictional land where nature and architecture are "one and the same"; it was presented in London (Lowe lectures 2000) and Munich, where a hard cover Art book was published. Part II explores the language of machines and proto-industrial design; Part III deals with the re-creation of space in films, assumed as pure architectural perception, exploring in detail Alfred Hitchcock's masterpieces.
