Light for

Public Space

Watch the Light Bite trilogy

 

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 this Light for Public Space sequence, you will explore several remarkable lighting projects worldwide that showcase the new possibilities offered for urban lighting in public spaces.

Part 1

A new wave of public lighting designs, focusing on light's social and urban role and showing six key areas that are helping revitalizing public spaces.

Part 2

Presents a framework for people’s engagement with light, shows how lighting technologies can enable a spectrum of public engagement.

Part 3

Light as a resource for cities and citizens, explores the economic, social, environmental and cultural aspects of lighting.
