The facade is given special care in architectural design, for being the only part of perceived building from the outside, it is often virtually the only available for express or characterize building resource. The expressive component is so rooted in the concept of facade, sometimes reference is made ​​to cover as the “fifth facade” when it has an aesthetic intention. The facade has undergone many transformations throughout history for their condition or canvas support for the various architectural styles. However, the most profound changes have resulted from the evolution of construction techniques. Traditionally, the facade has been both the structure and the building envelope, and thus the ability to open holes to light, vent, or have outside views has been limited. The historical development of the facade has since been a technological race to expand these necessary gaps.

The revolution was the replacement of traditional load bearing wall by pillars, arches use, and dump cover by flying buttresses around buttresses outdoors. That way the facade, freed from the weight, could have wide gaps were closed with large windows. The use of steel structure in the late nineteenth and the concrete in the early twentieth definitely ended up freeing the facade of their structural dependence. The architects of the Modern Movement explored the possibilities of a free façade, popularizing the run window and horizontal holes instead of the traditional vertical, using them both to better suit the vision of people like to show their independence from the structure.

The facades, in addition to the aesthetic function must satisfy other requirements: must be impervious to water, and thermally and acoustically insulate the interior. The thickness of a wall facade does not obey both needs stability or resistance to the need for acoustic mass and space to accommodate the insulation and air chamber insulation. Lightweight facades work as a hanging skin of the building. As the name implies, are lightweight, and do not contribute to the stability of the structure. This covers all the traditional facades, whether brick seen, plaster, tiling, stone, wood or other, plus the back-ventilated and busbar.

Facades are composed of wall sections that are made ​​of workshop, being assembled to each other in construction. Depending on your level of prefabrication, they can even be mounted façade walls with windows or door already installed. The facade of a commercial establishment is his “business card.” The facade of some shopping centers is supported by various actions of advertising, promotion and entertainment.

The lighting design is concerned with the design of systems of ligh for domestic, urban, nautical, spectacular film, television, art it’s a field of design evolving thanks to continuous technological innovations updating; research in the field in recent years is mainly aimed to produce new applications of artificial lighting automated or semi-automated. He was born on the specific needs of studio lighting of industrial areas and workplaces, as well as a result of the first studies of ergonomics and Ergonomics in the workplace. Nowadays also includes studies on lighting urban, particularly useful for the social security and the containment of electrical consumption, and studies on the use of light as a spectacular use in urban installations, performances, events, shows, etc.. The lighting design consists of several application areas of light and according to these sectors designers are also defined in different terms, but they all refer to the study and application of light.

The lighting design is a discipline that complements the set design, which aims to design and conduct a lighting system for the scenery. The role of lighting designer in the field of theater is to work with the director, set designer, costume designer, and sometimes the sound designer and choreographer to create a specific look or mood for each part of the show in response to the work taking into account the criteria of visibility, safety and cost prompted the production department of the show. Outside the theater, a lighting designer is dedicated to all the big shows like pop and rock concerts, product launches, business, art installations and spectacular sporting events, such as opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympic Games.

The work of the lighting is to develop meaning and intended by the director using the art of light emotions. Its flexibility can be very large. Indeed two different lighting will offer two different visions of the show.
