But in fact most people do not know who is the first to use this design approach, and the purpose of such a design.

Richard Kelly and Philip Johnson

The two masters pioneeredthe concept "Light washing" .That is, with a number of hidden light source to the wall evenly illuminated.

They first in the Mies van der Rohe led the design of Seagram buildings lighting design using the "Tower of light" concept, so that rough porous limestone material produced a very clean and elegant effect
