LIGHTING CONCEPT
The lighting and material selections have been chosen to create functional and high quality spaces.  Lighting is an extremely important aspect in the design of a museum, as the items being displayed are often light sensitiive.  In my design lighting is used to differentiate spaces and create glowing galleries with an overall soft, indirect quality of light.
