Panel discussion on the significance of light in (sacred) architecture and urban development | Radiance

Light plays an overriding role in almost all world religions and creates a sacred atmosphere in places of worship, temples and churches. While the architectural style is constantly changing, the reference to light remains. What is applied in sacred buildings also applies outside religion: light contributes decisively to the spatial effect and is an essential element of historical and contemporary architecture. In the panel discussion, the multi-layered use of light in space will be explored – also with regard to the current energy crisis and the need to conserve resources.
