    Key topics and learnings

     

    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
