    IES: New trends in lighting Master Plans, luminous ambiances and urban nightscapes

    Working on many cities lighting strategies led us, quite naturally and from the outset, to consider and integrate into our last Lighting Master Plans, frameworks of darkness that would preserve existing areas of darkness and create others, that will support the city’s green and blue lines, and design clear limits to areas of partial or temporary darkness, with their links and their crossing points.
    This lecture will try to show how design and creativity can lead to improvement and launch of new luminous ambiances in our cities. Through our recent studies and lighting projects in France and abroad in the fields of public spaces, landscape and contemporary architecture we will see the on-going concepts that can change progressively our city’s nights and skylines.
    The presentation will be an occasion to show through our 25 years’ experience how actual approaches of lighting can be a start to imagine new lighting strategies.
    Our latest experiences of monumental nightscapes in China will be shown to share some reflections with the audience about the nocturnal regeneration of urban spaces throughout diverse cultures.
