FUNCTIONALITY 0 : LIGHTING 1

light

There is no need for defining natural or artificial light, but we must be aware that both light sources help us perceive our surrounding. Change in the perception of surfaces directly affects the hierarchy of seeing the surfaces and spaces of an object. Architect Bruno Zevi has named one of his essays “Light as Architectural Form”. Le Corbusier went a little further, saying: “Architecture is the wise, correct and magnificent play of volumes gathered under light.”
