Light Reading

------------------------------------------------

This project for an archive, which will serve as extension to the Beinecke Rare Books Library in Yale University, is primarily about the archive user, its artifacts, and their relationship with daylight. Within the archive, the eye gradually adjusts to a new dim; light is employed sparingly; and an ongoing dialogue ensues at the interface between inside and outside, at the edges where the world outside ends, and the life of the archive within begins.
