Joost van Santen Light and Daylight Art in Architecture and Sculpture
The auditorium of the First Unitarian Church and School,
Rochester (New York and Salk Institute for Biological Studies La Jolla (California) 1959-1965)
Louis Kahn wrote 'No space, architecturally, is a space unless it has natural light.'
So many of his designs start with a study of natural light in the environment.
Kahn has written a book 'Light is the theme' about his design of the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.

Silence to Light
Light to Silence
The threshold of their crossing
is the Singularity
(Where the desire to express meets the possible)
is the Sanctuary of Art
is the Treasury of the Shadows
(Material casts shadows shadows belong to light)
Dynamic Daylight Images are the essence of the art of Joost van Santen
