Fluid, flowing architecture demands lighting equally flowing and dramatic. Lighting designers are forces to work hand-in-hand with artists and architects to fully realize a clients visions while still remaining fully grounded in practicality. It is often a touch-and-go two-step dance when engineers, artists, and designers are often pulling at opposite ends and have to compromise. These types of lighting projects can become cluttered and needlessly complicated quickly if the designers don’t have a good understanding of the physical and artistic properties of the building itself and how artificial and natural lighting will interact to best fit the design requirements.The Agbar Tower Auditorium, Barcelona (click to read about the project)
project is a good example of a lighting design that has practical roles to fill yet remains faithful to the architecture it is contained in and even enhances it.
Kudos to ECLER! 🙂
