Outdoor Architectural Lighting
Outdoor architectural lighting interacts with outdoor architectural elements to create a cohesive spatial experience and enhance the intrinsic charm, beauty, and utility of the architectural elements. The art of outdoor architectural lighting usually merges with the field of outdoor and landscape lighting design. The purpose of outdoor architectural lighting is, therefore, to unify the relationship between the architecture and the landscaping that surrounds it. Outdoor architectural light fixtures are designed and scaled to blend in with or disappear into the environment. Architectural impressions on buildings, bridges, sculptures, monuments, and other outdoor elements are created and enhanced by selectively illuminating individual details, shapes and structures. The overall appearance of the outdoor environment is organized into one continuous panorama.
