DAYLIGHT MAKES ARCHITECTURE
“Architecture appears for the first time when the sunlight hits a wall“ Louis Kahn
The targeted choice of position, size, shape and orientation of daylight openings in correspondence with the chosen room configuration is the central means of design. The interplay of light entry and interior reflection surfaces can generate sharply defined light figures as well as diffusely illuminated surfaces. Colours can be reflected into the room, shadows or clear highlights can blur or accentuate the contours of the room.
