Presented by: Landon Bannister & Ingrid Baldwin
Artificial lighting is often referred to as one of humankind's greatest triumphs over the natural world and the impact that we have had on the darker hours and its many and varied inhabitants has been profound and far-reaching. We need to be selective about how we design lighting if we are going to respect nature, our future and enrich our experience of the world. It is our obligation to light responsibly by improving how we design our nightscapes rather than eliminating opportunities. This talk will discuss the role that lighting can play in creating human engagement with the built environment and how we can mitigate our environmental impact through intelligent design.
