Seminar
Lighting as a Key Layer in New Urban Design
Why and how to light external space to provide an experience in the hours of darkness, how through applying light in layers we create an identity that captures the community, makes them proud and encourages them to spend more time in the space, to increase the visitor numbers and fundamentally to spend more money. The CPD will look at the movement of people, of how we have changed where we live and how technology is enabling us to change the way we design, allowing us to value external space more than ever. It will also look at the context of a project, to make sure we don’t lose the character and that a lighting masterplan is a key part of a multi-disciplinary design. Finally, the CPD will introduce methods of how to apply light with a number of case studies to introduce best practice. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand how technology and the way we live is challenging how we illuminate plazas and landscapes
- Understand how, with a collaborative approach and clear communication, lighting can be integrated into its surroundings and not an added extra as poles or bollards providing visual noise
