Daylight Inspiration

Most of all I was inspired by Steven Holl.

In these projects I feel that the daylighting techniques were successful, so I was inspired and took certain elements and interpreted it into my design.

Daylight Inspiration

Here is a brief list of designers and projects that design around daylighting that I was inspired by.

Le Corbusier: Monastery at La Tourette
The walls are very thick in this building which helps diffuse the light along with the slanted windows.

Jorn Utzon: Basvaerd Church
The curves incorporated into the ceiling is very asthetically pleasing but also reflects and diffuses the light into the space. The source of light is not at eye level, so you are not able to see where the light is coming from.

Tadao Ando: Koshino House
I enjoyed the slats in the wall of this space and the light and shadow patterns, that it creates.
