Then, too, available light may alter the perception of the individual work of architecture, art and other aesthetic. When looking at an artwork, you are naturally influenced by the light that illuminates it. Many public buildings have added glass walls and skylights to bring more natural light into the building. Architecture is frequently positioned to be lit to its best advantage by ambient light. Such power does light and its capture have that since the beginning of time, peoples have been trying to maximize its amazing characteristics by channeling it into their own creations.
Skylights, around since Roman times and probably before, were invented for just such a purpose: make use of light to illuminate and elevate the subject or important art in the structure. Many modern buildings have incorporated skylights into their architecture and this provides natural light, even moon light. I find the varied designs of skylights intriguing and, for the most part beautiful. The light that comes through the skylights is, of course, marvelous.
