"Luminous walls: From clerestory windows to pixelated planes", lecture at GSAPP

"Luminous walls: From clerestory windows to pixelated planes", lecture at GSAPP

The movie “Luminous walls: From clerestory windows to pixelated planes“, is a shortened version of the lecture that will be presented by Thomas Schielke at the Columbia University in the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation in New York (Oct. 26th, 2010). The timeline depicts different international lighting approaches from backlit clerestory windows for spiritual enlightenment to changing pixelated planes based on LED technology.

The overview of international projects from architects like Antonio Gaudi, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Kahn, Jean Nouvel, Peter Zumthor, Raffael Moneo, Toyo Ito, Christoph Ingenhoven and Karim Rashid or light artists as Peter Kogler and Erwin Redl covers various lighting methods and techniques for luminous walls and their visual appearance.
