Description

Lighting has the power to illuminate and enhance our experience within the built environment. The light that enables people to travel around their neighbourhood or their city; the light which they see themselves and their neighbourhood under. Research into the effects of urban lighting on behaviour, environmental psychology and social interaction is developing at a rapid rate. Yet, despite the affect it has on our daily lives, the practical application of this research is a relatively untapped resource. There has been a persistent trend to use lighting as a tool for urban regeneration and many major urban lighting projects around the country are underway but there is more that can be done on a variety of scales.

This book explores the needs and experiences of people at night and how these can be addressed by public lighting. It will give readers the confidence to develop more sophisticated lighting plans and add value to their projects. Case studies provide in-depth analysis of real-life projects and will help the reader to understand lighting designers’ own experiences, including post-installation observations. Written in an accessible style by an array of experts, this is an essential book for practitioners, academics and students alike, that will enable you to put the research in to practice and develop better lighting for better places.

Features contributions from Navaz Davoudian Elettra Bordonaro, Joanne Entwistle, Don Slater, Karolina Zielinska-Dabkowska, Jemima Unwin, Isabel Kelly, Dan Lister and Emily Dufner.
