It is the natural force to which every architect is humbled and respected to the extreme. The project, its forms, are read, perceived, and ultimately judged by the way it faces light. It’s a force that architects are trying to “control” to create almost dramatic effects on the outside as well as on the interior, but of course the challenge is big!
It takes profound knowledge of what is without hesitation called “the science of enlightenment”! The form is important to read not only in its individual form but also in the relation it creates with the other forms that surround it!
Light can have extreme function: the best friend and worst enemy for an architect! It is the unique and most genuine filter in which the architecture takes form!
It is up to the architect how to use the light, remodel it, orient it where he wants it, change the form … turn it into MATERIAL – whether it be diffuse light, or – a stain on the floor, inside and out, in megahuman dimensions or design elements!
