Absence of light as a design parameter
“Black Spaces” thematises the phenomenon of a space without light. How can such a seemingly limitless space be grasped? How can space be conceived and designed if the parameters actually contradict the spatial dimensions? A project group at the Technical University of Munich has examined the topic from different perspectives. Conversations with the architects Donatella Fioretti, Astrid Staufer and Francesca Torzo explore this architectural phenomenon. Additional brief bon mots and quotations come from architects, artists and filmmakers, who illuminate the subject very differently. This book shows the results of the design work using selected examples that accompany the textual content of the book as a separate storyline.
