Item description for Made of Light: The Art of Light and Architecture by Mark Major, Jonathan Speirs & Anthony Tischhauser...
Made of Light - the Art of Light and Architecture explores our illuminated world in a way that is both affecting and thought-provoking. Rather than addressing quantitive criteria, this book deliberately focuses on qualitative, ephemeral and abstract considerations and shows them to be an essential part of the relationship between light and built form. Made of Light is not intended to prescribe an approach; rather, it attempts to recognise that while we have our own, individual, subjective perception of light, there is also a dialogue to be had, through which this most exciting but elusive medium might be explored. Jonathan Speirs and Mark Major was well-established authorities on light. Taking their cues from the natural world, their approach - at the forefront of lighting design - is both invigorating and inspirational. Edited by Anthony Tischhauser, this book includes an interview with both architects, as well as vivid illustrations of their personal approach to an architecture that is Made of Light.
