The artistic treatment of light, devices with a shading or illuminating function are what distinguish Le Corbusier’s projects, becoming instruments to calibrate and modulate light, which is cleverly concealed or integrated with the constructed form and distributed like a veil over the surfaces. It is therefore extremely simplistic and inaccurate to bring the architectural identity of Le Corbusier, like so many other masters in the same period, down to a single geometric question of form, just as it would appear unproductive to produce an assessment focusing solely on the technical innovations of his projects, given that light remains a central milestone of his poetic complex, as he himself admits: ‘there is no doubt that I am making abundant use of light; light is, in my opinion, the basic element of architecture.
The principles underlying Barragan’s works are openly declared: The weightiness of the material and the stone are highlighted and at the same time denied by the presence of a light that is specially filtered and then directed towards the objects, almost as if wanting to upset the natural order of things. Gravity, light and time also feature in the Spanish works of architecture of Alberto Campo Baeza, become elements through which the material textures, interwoven with light, bring to life the architecture of complex spaces.
The study of natural light remained, at that time, the exclusive prerogative of treatises on theatre and the history of philosophy and art. Subsequent to the authoritative contribution of Vitruvius, for centuries the architectural value of light was neglected, as was light’s inescapably expressive capacity to comprehend space, forgotten by the literature and the critics. The lack of attention to the theme is probably due to the essence of other apparent meanings – mystical and religious – attributed to light.
