Lights



Light plays a very important role in Geoffrey Bawa’s architecture. The spaces he designed often come alive through an interplay of light and shadow, and he carefully controlled the way daylight entered each room. Bawa also designed many of the artificial lights for his buildings; allowing him to control the way the fixture could be seen in the space and the quality of the light it emitted.
