SHED LIGHT

SHED LIGHT

The Marker Design Challenge Competition 

First Prize Winner

The SHED LIGHT marker was created to tell the  story  of  women  in  architecture  that  are  often in the shadow, whereas their place is in the spotlight.

The  marker  consists  of  metal  letters  placed  perpendicular  to  the  wall  -  this  minimal  intervention  creates  a  line  that  may  be  almost   invisible  to  a  passerby.  However,  when  being  lighted  from  the  top,  by  the  Sun  during  the  day  or  by  an  artificial  light  during  the  night,  the marker casts shadow on the facade,  revealing a full name of the woman who  designed this building.

The marker is universal, can be used on every surface, in different positions,  showing as many names as needed. It is subtle in form, yet direct and powerful in meaning. Its mission is to make people notice and remember  the  female  names  that  are  missing  in  the   architectural context. It makes it possible  for  women  to  step  into  the  light  and  take  their well deserved place in the history  of architecture.
