A Sense of "Aliveness" and Vitality

Temple Beth El - Exterior smLight. Light in architecture is that which gives the space, with its human scale, a sense of “aliveness” and vitality. Natural light changes moment to moment offering a powerful link to the modulation needs of the sensory organism that we all are. We thrive on sensation and actually demand it physiologically to sustain arousal levels and optimal health.

 

ARC 305-Light Shaft RenderingLight offers this change, as no two moments of natural light in the environment are ever the same;  light is never static and always changing.  A space without natural light may be considered as “dead” and may impact its user over time in negative ways. Space and scale can be perceived and experienced because of the light that interacts and reveals them.
