For whom

The symposium offers an outstanding occasion for researchers, students, and practitioners to keep up-to-date with recent findings.



Architectural Lighting Design is the art of shaping light that forms life. Light can do much more than serve only vision; it goes far beyond design-only issues, it creates more than just emotions giving atmosphere to space.


Light maintains human health; it heals wounds and cures diseases!
Light and health – a new approach to improve the quality of life!


The University of Wismar has come of age, leading the way in this innovative field, promoting health and well-being in the 21st century. In the age of the photon, light will be an engine for growth and innovation and one of the strongest pillars of the health economy.


The spirit of the Hanseatic region resurges anew, offering their tradition of peace and health, and radiating out to the world.
