Tadao Ando: "L'architecture est aussi affaire de spiritualité"

I would say it means a premonition of dark things to come. Would "cast a shadow" not convey the same meaning? If I heard in English that someone was attempting to cast a shadow on a political program, I would presume it to mean that they were concealing it.
In this paragraph, however, "jeter une ombre sur" seems to mean something along the lines of "to shed light on," rather than "to cast a shadow on". However, that is only a guess since I have never heard this expression before.

For example, one could say "talks of a rigged ballot cast a shadow over the election" - similar to "overshadowed", I suppose. For this reason, the French sentence makes little sense to my Anglophone ears, but in any event the shadow imagery suggests a dark premonition, so I would not employ an expression involving "light"! I think le chat noir's suggestion 'cast a shadow' is what the sentence means literally and what jeter une ombre normally means.
In this context, jeter une ombre seem to mean 'doubt' or even 'impugn'. How about becloud?
