Why light needs darkness: Rogier van der Heide on TED.com

Posted by: Tedstaff

Lighting architect Rogier van der Heide offers a beautiful new way to look at the world — by paying attention to light (and to darkness). Examples from classic buildings illustrate a deeply thought-out vision of the play of light around us. (Recorded at TEDxAmsterdam, October 2010, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Duration: 16:52)
