Indoor lighting techniques

Le Corbusier, like many architects, was fascinated by the rolethat light had to play in his buildings and was a master at using natural light to define spaces within and routes through his buildings. He would no doubt be captivated by how such computer-based visualization techniques as radiosity can represent accurately the light within an as yet unbuilt space, at any time of day or night. The interaction of light with form and space can be evaluated and accurate lighting data can be gleaned, which can be an invaluable tool in architectural design and specification of lighting components.
