The visions of eight Masters of Lighting Design.

This means the public realm will be used more consistently around the clock, which in turn will lead to an increased need for appropriate lighting solutions outside daylight hours.
Urban lighting in the form of master plans with illuminated landmarks and purposefully designed lighting for traffic and circulation areas is due to be complemented by light-related factors that relate to human scale and well-being at night time. Besides the need for safety – shady characters shy away from light – these include the effort to design public spaces so they are more attractive and promote social life in the urban realm. Designers were encouraged to include interactivity and smart lighting to support this move. The goal: human-oriented lighting design in the urban context, taking the City of Paris as an example…
