Rebecca Gross added this to How a TB Pandemic Helped Shape Modernist Architecture31 July 2020

Early Modernist architecture was characterised by clean lines, white surfaces, large swathes of glass and indoor-outdoor living. While this has often been described as a ‘machine’ aesthetic, academics such as architectural historian, theorist and curator Beatriz Colomina (author of X-Ray Architecture) and dean of architecture at the University of Arkansas, Peter MacKeith, argue it is rather a hospital aesthetic and human-centred perspective. Indeed, this interior helped foster a lighter, airier, more open and hygienic environment. Modernist furniture design also contributed to this. Made with materials such as stainless steel and leather, furniture was raised on legs, making it easier to move, clean and see around. Reclining chairs, such as the LC4 chaise longue designed in 1928 by Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret, also appeared more frequently at this time and with a distinctly Modernist aesthetic. They were inspired by the reclining chair found in sanatoriums, which elevated the legs for circulation.

The natural light makes the room bright and hits many points in the room.

Natural Lighting. Definition: Natural lighting makes a area feel very bright, well depending on the temperature (seasons) and the time. So when it's springs it a more vibrant color and winter is a cooler color. Orange will come about in the morning and evening is more of a blue sunlight.

The natural light coming through the windows makes everything appear lighter and brighter. The black lounge chair appears more grey from the light.

1. Natural Lighting - The bright sun light makes the interior feel very cherry, and this image does not have much reflection of the sun light.

Natural Lighting - This lighting has the full spectrum of colors creating white light.

Just idea of how it might flow - too much white but like big windows

Light The light coming through the windows is an example of natural lighting. In this room it adds warmth, and makes the room appear larger and more open.
