THE ROLE OF DAYLIGHT IN ARCHITECTURAL CREATIONS OF CONTEMPORARY CULTURAL FACILITIES

Abstract

The paper studies the role of light in architectural creations of contemporary buildings of representative function. Based on the selected projects and completed buildings dedicated to culture and art, it analyzes and systematizes the examples of using light to obtain visual effects that mark the architecture with a universal and timeless message. The method of research is case study and critical analysis of literature. Light plays a particularly significant role in shaping contemporary buildings of cultural function. Nowadays, architects designing meeting places of cultural importance refer to the oldest traditions of sacral architecture and places of worship, where light played a vital role. Contemporary buildings of culture and art have become the scene of experiment with light, where modern design techniques, new technologies of materials and facade systems are employed. Both, natural and artificial light, make up an indispensable material of architecture, treated on a par with other materials. In modern times, the protection of the environment, as well as human health are in the focus of attention. Protecting the city against light pollution and striving for maximum energy efficiency of buildings are now of top priority. Therefore, the idea of architecture using daylight gains more significance. It brings to mind the ancient architecture as the daylight gives the contemporary architecture a special, timeless atmosphere. The use of computer designing methods, technologically advanced materials, and glassing creates a special prospect for the architecture of daylight. A significant role of daylight manipulation can be seen in some architectural realisations and these buildings take on the role of icons in contemporary architecture.
