Urban Natural Lighting – #architecture #urbanlighting #naturallighting

Urban areas are often challenged by having insufficient light. Artificial lighting is costly and not a green solution. An alternative is to have a few taller buildings with glass to capture natural light and bring it down to the street level. In this example, from Iowa City, the building on the left captures sunlight from above and reflects it down into an otherwise shadowed alleyway. Building design by MoenGroup.com.
