Event description

Description

As both an overarching idea and a hands-on approach for improving a neighborhood, city, or region, placemaking inspires people to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces as the heart of every community.

Project for Public Spaces' Placemaking Speaker Series is a monthly talk that connects people to ideas, resources, expertise, and partners who see place as the key to addressing our greatest challenges. We hope you will join us for learning and conversation at our offices in New York on the last Thursday of each month from 6:00PM to 7:00PM (ET).

June 27, 2019

On June 27th, join lighting urbanist, Leni Schwendinger, for a talk, and discussion, about the trends and innovative methodologies that are rocking the world of public lighting design. Lighting of our streets and sidewalks and public spaces is essential for a thriving 24/7 world. Night is an existing condition often overlooked during urban design and planning stages. Holistic, after-dark strategies are critical for cities, districts and campuses to attract and retain locals and visitors. Nighttime design urbanism is a broad discipline where urban lighting leads the way with interdisciplinary team research and design. Whether you are an architect, designer, engineer, owner or municipal agency representative: bring yourself up to date on urban lighting principles and tools. This talk will broaden your outlook to create improved, inclusive, resilient, after-dark city space. Be sure to come and join us for "Luminous Legibility - Lighting and Nighttime Design Urbanism: A primer for city design advocates".
