Rethinking the Shades of Night

Die Forschungsabteilung der weltweit tätigen Ingenieur- und Consulting-Firma Arup hat in Kooperation mit der firmeneigenen Lightning-Sparte einen Forschungsbericht mit dem Titel »Rethinking the Shades of Night« publiziert.

Beleuchtet wird das Thema Licht unter technischen als auch sozio-ökonomischen Vorzeichen und leitet daraus den Bedarf eines Night-time Design ab.

»While the urban renaissance of the last 20 years has increased the number of people living in city centres, this has not always successfully translated into the notion of a ‘24 hour’ city. What has been missing is a considered approach to strategic planning and design for the night-time. A holistic approach to urban lighting could help create vibrant, prosperous, safe and inclusive places for those who live, work and play in cities—at all hours.«
