shame, isn’t it ?
coming from a theatrical background I have the somewhat high and mighty opinion that lighting is, be it internal or external, an art form.
Used at it’s best it should highlight the beauty and detail of a structure, taking full advantage of the contrast between light and darkness afforded by the night.
In my opinion there’s mouch more to it than just lighting it up so people can see it, New aspects of any structure should come alive after dark. A beautiful example I saw recently was in the “style” section of this weeks Sunday Times (Graham, ask your wife/partner where she left it) It’s a pic of the front of the V&A Museum at night, no front facade lighting at all, but every archay and window is lit. It really looks stunning and gives the building a majesty completely different to the one it has during the day.
