IALD and Enlighten Europe
Prague Marriott Hotel
Prague, Czech Republic

The industrialization of light and subsequent illumination of our cities and towns has created a wealth of light at night. What began as a response to a need for safety at night has now blossomed into a nighttime world of dazzling light. From illumination for security to celebration of architecture to entertainment to advertising light is all around us at night in the city. The explosive arrival of the LED in exterior lighting and media façades now demands that we step back and examine the world we are making. This talk will explore the evolution and implications of light in the places we meet both friends and strangers… Public Light.
