Next Fall, set design by Wilson Chin located at the Helen Hayes Theater on Broadway.
On a stage that does not change decorations, furniture or backdrops the changes in lighting transforms the feeling of a space and mood of a scene as well as the location of the story. Set design is designing in a controlled environment in a way that will be perceived by the viewer as directed by the actors. How can the use of artificial light and natural light in architecture transform the use of a space? Lighting has the ability to wake people up, make them somber, make them cold and make them warm, amongst other emotions. Exploring the work of controlled set design could help speak to a larger scale architectural project.
