    Do not go gentle into that good night…

    What are the truly important roles for light in our nighttime outdoor environments? How can the recipe for “good” lighting embrace aspects of quality that go well beyond that of illuminance? This session will take an introspective look at how we illuminate public space after dark and how the techniques employed can strengthen or erode safety, security, preference and, ultimately, success of the pedestrian experience. Case studies and project examples will be used to examine specific lighting application approaches and their effectiveness in reinforcing the goals for a project. Attention will be given to how lighting for the often diverse needs of outdoor gathering spaces can be harmonized. Research in the field will also be examined for its relevance in current lighting design practice, as well as for what it can say about the development of lighting equipment and controls in support of the industry’s needs.
    Food and drinks will be provided.
