I've been Shadow Hunting for a year now. This week I came across a gem in the ordinary structures at a corner of the shopping center where my local food store is located!
Can Light and Shadow govern a building design? Beautiful interior spaces boast not just of excellent use of colors, themes and materials but also on how they collectively integrate to form a useful aesthetic space. An important aspect of this integration is the light, be it natural or artificial which pours in any space. An effect of light is shadow, and if done correctly, natural or artificial lighting can create blissful shadows which can animate any space. However, if not worked out properly, light can create bad uncomfortable shadows which would make spaces look dull and gloomy.
Seeing the same space with different diffused lighting, at different times of the day can add interest to a space. Light changes according to the season as well, so designing with respect to casting shadows can ensure added charm at different times of the year.
I post an article daily, and I hope to see you again soon!
