Newly available in paperback, "The Architecture of Natural Light" is the first publication to consider the many effects of natural illumination in contemporary buildings. This comprehensive and thoughtful survey begins with a brief introduction to the history of architecture, seen through the advances and experimentation put forward by architects over the centuries. Seven chapters are devoted to specific qualities of natural light, and each includes an introduction that considers the particular uses of light through many disciplines, from art history to film and literature. The book includes works by the world's most influential architects, among them Tadao Ando, Steven Holl, Herzog & de Meuron, Peter Zumthor, Frank Gehry, Alvaro Siza, Alberto Campo Baeza, Rafael Moneo, Rem Koolhaas, Jean Nouvel, Fumihiko Make and Toyo Ito. This is the perfect title for anyone interested in creating space that transcends the physical. "The Architecture of Natural Light" is a powerful, poetic yet practical survey that provides an original and timeless approach to contemporary architecture. "Sumptuous". ("The Times Literary Supplement").
