The natural environment is a constantly shifting wonder of light, shade and colour; with cycles of days and cycles of seasons; subtleties of shifting patterns, colour and other intangible qualities of light allow us to locate ourselves in place and in time.

Yet, too often, our man-made environment ignores these natural rhythms and provides the coolness, pattern and variation of a permanently overcast day. However, with skill, knowledge and creativity, practical and pragmatic solutions can be found to enhance the built environment, to tell a story or express a mood, even to enhance nature, but above all to reinsert the dynamic that bad lighting so often extinguishes.
