This book is unexpectedly awesome!!!!!!, 17 Dec. 2009
The book is totally out of my imagination, it is so well written, the examples are in enough detail and the essays based on 7 themes on light, which is evanescence, procession, veils of glass, atomization, canalization, atmospheric silence and luminescence. The essays talk much about the light's metaphysical nature and how the architects use the light in a way with different philosophies, this is not a book on superficial use of light, but a book that will make you very sensitive to the light's meaning, usage and human reaction. MUST READ book !!!
