Interactive lighting in the urban realm: the process of creating ambiences
Presentation date: 27. October
Presentation time: 12:00
This paper is based on the experimental part of Nour Mousawi‘s PhD research, which explores new ways of creating interactive lighting ambiences in the urban realm. Urban lighting and the night-time image of the cities around the world have undergone great changes in the last few years – often related to technological developments, but also to changing urban lifestyles. She will present a methodological process that would be beneficial for urban lighting projects in the present day (transitional phase) and in the future, taking users’ needs into account and promoting specific activities related to specific contexts. The presentation also underlines the importance of carrying out in-situ experiments and observing the effect of non-static lighting.
