We often speak about daylight as a generic phenomenon rather than as a specific phenomenon tied to specific place and season. Many of my design colleagues work to amplify daylight’s seasonal scarcity at the latitude they build in while for our desert work daylight’s abundance is the challenge, its modest use the imperative. In any locale I see daylight as a dynamic sculptural material to be used to enliven space and enhance our experience of it. Daylight is at the heart of my architectural endeavors to raise the ordinary to the extraordinary.
