The past decade has seen an extraordinary growth in exterior lighting. Outdoor public spaces, exterior building facades, and entire urban landscapes are being transformed with creative lighting designs. One of the most difficult challenges facing those responsible for lighting design is in creating these nighttime environments in an environmentally sensitive manner. This session will examine the role of lighting to make our outdoor spaces active and vital after dark. How can issues of dark skies, lighting trespass, nuisance glare and other related environmental concerns be addressed during the design process? What proven techniques and applications are available to frequently encountered problems? What emerging changes in codes and regulations will impact lighting designers? Case studies and examples will be used to communicate these ideas.
