Concepts The power of light to transform architecture and landscape is of primary concern. With an innovative approach to design, integrated works are created in a range of materials, designed to respond to the suns shifting influence, changing in impact throughout the course of a day. Current practice is concerned with the links between natural light and well-being and commissioned works aim to bring natural lighting phenomena into architectural space.
