share the desire to explore approaches defining volumn and space


Explanation:
Unless the context gives a technical definition of "plan" (such as stage design), I think this is it. Seems unlikely it is "architectural plans" or different depths.

\"considerer\" is fairly easy in this phrase - several good possibilities have been given - mine is \"explore\". But I thunk the difficulty is \"plan\". I wonder is others are simply avoiding the issue, or if they agree with my potentially controversial understanding.

disagree  Michel A.: I don't think the French 'considérer' could be 'share' it has here the meaning of "have a look at..."
1 hr
  -> "share" is the earlier part of the phrase - "have a look at" I have rendered as "explore". I consider the colon to be less English, so I rewrote the structure of the phrase.
