Enlightening artistry: a harmonious union of light and design

We had the pleasure to work with the 2013 Pritzker Prize winner Toyo Ito Architects on the lighting design for The Museo Internacional del Barroco (MIB) in Puebla.

The studio worked closely with Toyo Ito’s team in Barcelona to create a lighting scheme according to the design of the building to make a solid unit. Fluidity and natural light and shading were basic concepts of design.

As in Baroque art, the use of light in MIB has a special meaning. It communicates ideas, expresses emotion, movement, and drama, and illustrates the union between the heavens and the earth, guiding the visitors throughout their visit to the Museum.
