This article describes the concept of rhythm as the means of architectural expressiveness, its influence on the organization and perception of the surrounding architectural space. It is drawn out, that the use of such means as rhythm and light in architecture is of natural origin. Some results of experiments and researches on the effect of rhythm on the human body are given. The concept of “architectural arrhythmia”, which causes negative sensations when a person perceives architectural objects, as well as the monotonous and trivial organization of architectural forms and spaces is introduced. It is noted that negative sensations are intensified in conditions of lack of light. A historical overview of the development of artificial architectural lighting as a new trend in architecture is given. The conclusions that the use of light rhythm allows to solve many architectural problems, as it is a significant tool for identifying the aesthetics of architectural forms are given.
