Louis Kahn wrote 'No space, architecturally, is a space unless it has natural light.'
So many of his designs start with a study of natural light in the environment.
Kahn has written a book 'Light is the theme' about his design of the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.

Silence to Light
Light to Silence
The threshold of their crossing
is the Singularity
is Inspiration
(Where the desire to express meets the possible)
is the Sanctuary of Art
is the Treasury of the Shadows
(Material casts shadows shadows belong to light)
