Light is the muse of architecture and all of the elements built serve, control and filter the beams toward the interior space through the windows, openings in the roof, porticos and doors. Johanna Grawunder the architect has always made it her material of choice, just like her masters Mies van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright. Her take on artificial light reflects the same passion; she thinks of it as architecture and proposes that it fulfil an inversed role. Artificial light recomposes interior architecture through the abstraction of its form. It draws a new space, breaks with the volume of the room, all the while maintaining the quality of the luminosity and adding a sacred function: a reflective altar.
‘I express myself through the abstraction of shapes, because I want to affirm my position in a dynamic contemporary culture and stay flexible enough to react to it and evolve in its direction.’
