Light and Shadow
Ahmed Zorgui, Ala Eddin Noumi (TN)
"For me it's an experience. Daylight is one of the most important elements of our existence, which affects everything in our lives including our movement, our health and our daily activities. As an architecture student, daylight plays an important role in my reflections and perception in the elements"
Automated Blind Study
Amir Nezamdoost, Alen Mahic, Malak Modaresnezhad (US)
"We decided to see daylighting from the opposite – not just to think about providing daylight into the buildings, but to think how to bring controlled daylight (neither too much nor too little) into the spaces and provide visually comfortable conditions for the occupants"

Asia + Oceania
"The idea of the project is to change the way people usually experience light – with their eyes – to ‘feeling’ it with their hands. It considers how blind people would be able to feel a world with light and enjoy the beauty of light and shadow, legible in the surfaces as braille"

"If you think of architecture as the art of creating spaces, I think that daylight is the most important factor because without light you couldn't perceive the space, and the quality of light defines the quality of the space"
Hammershøi's Grammar - A study of an artist’s perception and representation of Nordic light
Nicholas Shurey (DK)
"Architecture is a framework for experience. Buildings are generally static but daylight is such a dynamic phenomenon. If architecture is conscious and understanding of daylight then there is a real possibility to create powerful experiences"
