Seen from the top, the buildings standing in the distribution of 5 height difference of the mountain looks like a medieval town hidden among the trees.
And an idea of illumination design appears, which is the sample of architectural lighting—the Lake Santorini.
We analyzed the features of Santorini’s nocturnal scene and found that light is most abundant in the recesses, creating an unusually rich variety of light and shade as the buildings stack up.
Therefore, in this project, we placed the light mostly in the recesses of the building or on the inside of the building, so that the main structural feature of the building can be reflected, while the exterior and the surface are in shadow. Once all the buildings are connected horizontally and longitudinally, there are repeated variations of light and dark, which are enriched by differences in the orientation of the buildings.
the image arouses familiar memories that move people.
