International Nighttime Design Initiative (NTD) is developing unique methodologies to intersect the everyday and aspirational, while harnessing the social experience of neighbors, workers, and owners, bringing stakeholders together. As “shades of night” focus on temporal rhythms from sunset to dawn, the “facets” signify lenses with which to study darkened urban public-space through local materials, built environment and inhabitation. We are inventing a system that that considers culture, climate, and geography to transform city nights one neighborhood at a time.
Join Leni’s visual discourse regarding her team, the process of research, to innovate an overarching framework for global application of light with urban design. The objective is to improve after-dark experiences – inspiring, safer, healthier and economically vital.
Here are the learning objectives of this webinar:
- Differentiate between illumination design for buildings and for infrastructure
- Learn to incorporate the public space issues of streets and mobility into your designs
- Get up to speed on the global night management trends
- Initiate understanding about lighting conflicts, “Blue Sky vs Starry Night”, for example, user-centered vs. wildlife, light obtrusion vs. urban joy, sleep vs. 24hr city and nightshift workers
