This volume provides the reader with a complete understanding of one the most important materials in architecture: light. Organized into a first technical chapter, followed by six more with example projects classified by purpose and theme, the book contains many examples of how to use light in a multitude of different spaces. The selected projects demonstrate the important role that light plays in any design: light forms a space, creates atmosphere and changes the perception of volumes. This book is, without doubt, a great source of inspiration for anyone interested in design, landscape, or architecture.
