B+S architecture and lighting

The lighting in people’s homes is very personal. And the light in office, hospitality and retail environments can be tailored to suit the needs of the people who visit or work there. But in public spaces, the lighting is often generic, impersonal and static. Such strictly functional lighting does not reflect the dynamics of human activities in the public realm. Until now.


In the Light for public space series, you will explore several remarkable lighting projects worldwide that showcase the new possibilities offered for urban lighting in public spaces.


In March and April we will present three Light Bites:


Part 1 - Available for viewing online:

A new wave of public lighting designs, focuses on light’s social and urban role. It shows how six key areas of change are helping to activate and revitalize public spaces, transforming light from a fixed entity to a tunable medium. Please register for this Light Bite series in order to receive the video of part 1.


Part 2 - April 9:

A framework for people’s engagement with light, shows how lighting technologies can enable a spectrum of public engagement. Real-time responsive lighting infrastructures will make the urban realm more welcoming, safe and attractive.


Part 3 - April 23:

Light as a resource for cities and citizens, explores the economic, social, environmental and cultural aspects of lighting. These come into play when redesigning a connected and digitally driven city as an inclusive and sustainable place to live.


Our Light Bites will be offered in video format. Those that registered will receive a link to the Light Bites on the dates mentioned above.
