In a wide-ranging and erudite article that is historical, cultural and philosophical, Stephen Kite explores the experiential nature of the penumbra. He reminds us of some of architecture's most celebrated spaces where subdued light calms architectural vistas. Flooding us with notable examples, he examines the penumbra in terms of sublimity, prospect and refuge, and psychoanalysis.
