LIGHT

The idea of this project was to study how a building uses and takes in light. As light comes into a building it can be controlled using different techniques like backlighting, reflector shields, and light cannons. Using curved surfaces in a building allows for exquisite light splashes and interesting patterns of light to form. The building we designed was a non-denominational chapel, which uses creative lighting techniques to create a peaceful and meditative space.
