I feel that darkness and rich shadows have been neglected, in favour of an over abundance
of light. Through my research I sought to investigate the power which darkness and shadow
within space hold over us, as well as examine the societal and individual impact of shadows,
darkness and light, but also why darkness and shadow are needed within architecture.
