Lighting design

There was a peculiarity to light shining on the exterior of the Lincoln Memorial. Overall it’s well lit except at the center where there is a falloff in illumination. There seems to be lights on either side of the monument to light up the ends but they don’t overlap much at the center leaving a dead spot in the center, lighting-wise.

I don’t know if it was an oversight or a part of the building’s lighting design, but that darkness makes Lincoln’s seated statue, which is well-lit within the building, stand out even more.
