The purpose of this project is to understand how to use light when designing a building, how it effects the spaces of a building and how to control this light in a proper manner. Light is able to make a space feel more or less important, larger or smaller, tranquil or upbeat. I have been selected to design a non-denominational chapel located on the campus of Farmingdale State College. The college has made it a point they want this building to be spiritual place where all religions and faiths can reflect on life. Light can be used as a creative tool when designing this chapel. This building should be integrated into the look of the campus. The college has requested help from an architect to pick a location on campus for the chapel. They have asked for a preliminary set of plans.
