koozarchArchitecture of Light by Jack Lewandowski#art #architecture #artitecture #koozarch
The Pinhole Factory is an exploration and celebration of the notion of light in architectural design. The institute eulogises the art of analogue photography, in particular, that of pinhole cameras. A pinhole camera uses light to produce imagery in the most cardinal sense. Using no more than a minute opening allowing light to infiltrate a dark space, a photograph can be taken.
This can be relatable to architectural form. In the way a pinhole camera fabricates an image through granting light to enter a mass through an opening, architecture can allow light to enter a space, carving shadows and creating dynamistic, atmospheric design. It is these qualities of light and shadow I decided to scrutinise as an operandi to design the light institute. Architecture that uses the play of light to dictate space and provide experiential qualities. My aim has been to give the building two qualities; the measurable quality of everyday use, and the unmeasurable quality of its atmosphere and existence.
