AbstractRecent trends in night illumination designs for building have experienced special
roles in the architectural compositions. These roles were the prime factors in enhancing
the characters of a building at night and concentrating on the building’s special details
and functions thru the definition of its internal and external spaces. The process is
mainly teased on two levels; The mental and the practical. Which will ensure the
continuity of spaces and the sustainability of its parts within the natural surrounding.
Sometime, equal in effect to day light, conditions, if not more effective in showing the
main creative features of the artifact.
The crux of the problem in the study is represented in the un-ability to define or
explain the full extent of the role of the night illumination design on buildings, within
the frame of the two levels of the process; i.e.: Mental and practical. Hence, the aim of
the research can be identified in the attempt to put down clear dimensions in the
process for achieving complete architectural creativity in night illumination designs of
The research indicated to the effectiveness of night illumination designs on
buildings in achieving the dominance of its features on the building, then it become
possible to draw some conclusions for the study.
