Section: Light

A10 - new European architecture Magazine, has a section on lighting in the November/December 2006 issue. Parts of the original article can be found here:


Although not tangible, light is perhaps the most important ‘material’ that architects have at their disposal. Light is complementary to every aspect of a design; at the most basic level it makes colours, textures, spaces and forms visible, but the particular quality of the light can also subtly transform any one of these. And, of course, the presence of light is a precondition for inhabiting a building. Light brings materials to life, it can even endow a building with a ‘soul’.
