Here we describe, for the first time, intriguing solvato-morphological control of spiropyran-based microcrystalline structures. These micro- structures exhibit reversible photoisomerization upon light irradiation (UV/Vis) in the solid-state. Finally, light-guided aggregation of these microstructures at the liquid/air interface is also demonstrated.
