Louis Kahn

“But the architects who are designing rooms today have lost faith in natural light. By becoming dependent on the light switch they are content with static light and forget about the endlessly changing character of natural light which transforms a room each second of the day.”

“The layout of a building should read like a harmonious whole made of space and light. Even the room that is meant to be dark should at least receive some light through a hidden opening, so that one knows how dark it is inside. Each room should be determined by its very own structure and by its own natural light.”
