LIGHT AND ARCHITECTURE

Light and architecture

Like music, architecture conveys emotions that can be perceived intensely. And just like music, which needs sound in order to express itself, architecture also has its own medium with which to manifest itself: light.
Over the centuries, architects have expressed the style of their era by using light to create shapes and spaces that only light can give full meaning to them.

Recently, technological innovations have made it possible to imagine and create large glass surfaces of the highest quality. This makes it possible to flood the rooms with a light - natural light - that changes with the passing of the day and the seasons. A modern light, a source of experimentation and continuous research, the foundation of every architecture that is truly contemporary.

In all my projects I have always looked for a strong twentieth century light, such as the cool one of a spring morning or the golden one of a sunset, or the starry one of an August night: a light capable, however, of conveying emotions to permit you enjoy yourself.
