Architecture which uses light other than just for illumination

Hi.

Could anybody suggest any buildings they can think of, which use light (prefer natural) as part of design.

I am thinking the way in which Tadao Ando does in his Church of Light, Osaka.
Maybe Liberskind in Berlin with his Jewish museum.

Just interesting and powerful use of light in architecture basically.

Cheers.

Good question. Using light as an architectural element has always been a test of greatness and I'm curious to see some modern examples. There are only a few examples in the past, like the gothic stained glass, Borromini's dome at the San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane or the oculus of the Pantheon dome.
