For this assignment I was interested in how placing windows could change how light was entering and illuminate a space (drawing 1). I was particularly interested creating a restful environment for meditation and have a dramatic contrast of light and darkness within a space. The two pictures were also looking at how the windows in the east addition were carefully placed to create different atmospheres of light. In Photo 1 I specifically was drawn to the the use of material behind a window that then reflected light across it and radiated into the room. In the second photo, I was more interested in how the floor material could also be used to bend and reflect light onto an opaque surface.
