Nighttime Design for the 24-Hour City

“Nighttime is an existing condition, and that condition engenders different behaviors, different situations, different perceptions at night”

Leni Schwendinger, founder of NightSeeing™ and formerly global urban lighting leader from Arup discusses the role of lighting design to create a 24-hour city. Leni’s signature NightSeeing™ program is an eye-opening concept to understand the way lighting impacts our after-hours urban experience. Leni brought her first NightSeeing walk to Prague around the In/visible City conference.
