Learning to appreciate light in architecture. Without light, even the most beautiful buildings would be trees falling in empty forests.

Using light to create art - but this time using how light creates shadows. I think it would be so fun to have the time to do something like this!! Props to Kumi Yamashita, the artist.

The Guangzhou Opera House, Guangdong Province, China - Zaha Hadid Architects

 The use of light in this space is astounding. Talk about luxury! This opera house designed by the iconic Zaha Hadid Architects gave the lighting designers quite a lovely palette to work with. The lighting consultant, Beijing Light and View, went above and beyond with their understanding of the way light would play off the smooth surfaces. They were able to highlight the expansiveness of the hall by lighting the undersides of the terraces. What really jumps out is that playful use of sparkle. It’s like you’re looking up at a sky full of bright stars. Love it.
