    Composition of Surfaces in Light

    Working models of wood, cardboard or clay, and graphic media such as watercolor and charcoal have traditionally been used to study the modulation of light by building surfaces. Now that high­-resolution color raster display devices are available at a reasonable cost, computer graphics provides an increasingly attractive alternative. Software can be written to allow convenient variation of building form, color, light-source characteristics and of viewing parameters.
