When architecture meets media

Light has been part of architecture for centuries. But in the last 20 years, more and more technologies have found their way into the design process of buildings and facades. It isn’t about natural light only anymore, but rather about how lighting and technology can be used to make the building tell a story, transmit a message or even become interactive. To explore this topic further, we sit down with iart’s founder and CEO Valentin Spiess, who talks to us about his agency, his take on media architecture and about his hometown of Basel.
