Light & Color
This lecture will focus on light and color in architecture,
in developing the building envelope, and interior space.
"The sun never knew
how great it was until it hit the side of a building."
- Louis Kahn
최근 몇 년 동안 건축가들은 주로 태양을 이용한 데이터 기반 설계 프로세스에 초점을 맞추고 있지만, Louis Kahn은 우리가 경험적으로 알고 있는 것, 즉 건축에서 빛을 질적, 정량적 (quantity and quality)로 말할 수 있다는 것을 강조합니다.
빛과 색은 단지 건축에서 다루어야 할 또 한 가지의 기준이 아니라, 건축의 가능성을 풍부하게 하고 건물의 기본적 특성을 부여하는 원동력이 될 수 있습니다. 베니쉬가 디자인한 빛과 색이 가득 채운 학교나 사무실을 같이 보고, 건축물 외부와 내부가 햇빛, 채광에 어떻게 대응하였는지 이야기를 나눕니다.

Louis Kahn is quoted as saying “The sun never knew how great it was until it hit the side of a building”. In recent years architects have been primarily focused on data driven design processes with the sun, but Kahn highlights what we empirically know: that we can speak of light in architecture in both qualitative and quantitative ways.
As architects we deal with the sun at two levels in buildings. One, at the threshold of entering the building, where we seek to keep out heat at specific times (at higher EM wavelengths), let it in at other times, and to let light in and keep out glare. Once inside the building we ask how to amplify or supplement light. It is here, inside the building that we often discuss the more qualitative and subjective qualities; In the illuminated building we discuss space and color.
We will discuss design responses at the building exterior and at the interior surface. We will speak of the opportunities and challenges of the recent data driven approaches to filtering the sun as it reaches the building, geometric responses to the movement of the sun, volumetric responses to the movement of the sun, and fabrication technologies that have enabled these designs. Inside the building we will discuss ways of diffusing light and spreading light on interior surfaces, the large open spaces bathed in light that we believe are characteristic of healthy social spaces, and color as way to bring life into spaces.
