Light Sketch Series 4

Cold Cathode lighting
This lighting lamp is very interesting in this dining space. The reflectivity o the tables gives your mind the illusion of a continuing line. The narrowness of the lamp keeps it from being too bright and overpowering the space. I think this space is extremely successful.
Incandescent lighting
This home image of incandescent lighting is something that we are very used to seeing. This light is being joined by natural light also, but it still seems like it emits an appropriate amount of light for the space. It creates a soft glow on the couch and a slightly harsher bright glow on the table. Great spot for reading! : )
Halogen lighting
This hallway is lined with studio track lights that have halogen lamps. For a hallway, the space seems a bit bright and the style of the lights seem a little bit out of place in this setting. The country wood and classic picture frames collide with the institutional bright lights and make for a relatively awkward space.

Daylight Model

We used Eero Saarinen's MIT chapel as inspiration for our intimate space. The idea of reflection signifying a place of importance in a room was important to our team. We put a dome in the roof that would capture sunlight and filter it in to the spot where the metal was. It also left a bright spot on the floor which catches attention, letting the eye recognize its importance.

Light Model

The main idea we decided to deal with was reflection. We also thought it would be beneficial to mix light colors the way that we learned on our trip to the Science Center. With the aluminum foil crinkled different ways, you can see different colors on different surfaces. Red surfaces face mostly to the right. Blue surfaces face mostly left. Magenta surfaces point forward or somewhere in the middle where the red and blue light mix. With the use of a black top, we created shadows that faced upwards. We thought our model was extremely successful in the way that we used the light in the space.
