Light is the primary language of architecture. In this new coffee table book by Peter Hyatt the use of light is explored through the illustration of over 50 projects by practices both large and small from all over the globe. This book illustrates how architects, often experimental and highly individual, respond to a brief and a site and how the project can be transcended by the manipulation of light. Masters of Light: Designing the Luminous House presents the house from the perspective of the use of light as an architectural tool. From Shigeru Ban through to Felipe Assadi, Durbach Block to Alberto Campo Baeza, the manipulation and understanding of light is portrayed in differing ways and with amazing effect.
