The creative aspect of light has been for centuries explored and used in art, architecture or painting. Since the earliest times, interior designers applied the art of light. Ancient societies raised objects of worship, worshiping light as a source of life. Examples include such famous buildings as the Roman Pantheon, Hagia Sophia, temples of ancient Egypt, and later Gothic cathedrals in Europe. Light in architecture is used to build so-called visual space of the building - it creates a solid body, emphasizing its aesthetic qualities. According to many theorists, light is one of the most important determinants of architecture. Le Corbusier said that architecture is: playing solid in the light.

Modern | Industrial architecture is often inspired by light, or uses light in combination with innovative technology and new materials. For example, the symbolic light of the Jewish Museum in Berlin by Daniel Libeskind or the Kimbell Art Museum designed by Louis Kahn. For Daniel Libeskind, light creates a particular sacrum in the design of buildings. As the architect says, it is not the light itself, but the specific way in which it is introduced into the interior. In the case of the block of the Jewish Museum in Berlin, it is, for example, a narrow slit in the roof resembling a sword. Daniel Libeskind said, architecture is a game of lights and space for him.
