The light learning
event of the year

Create the Livable City workshop

Join the next generation of lighting experts. The Create the Livable City workshop is a yearly event that brings together architects, urban planners and lighting designers to discuss and exchange the role of lighting in urban development.

 

The workshops have already brought together more than 150 architects, urban planners and city representatives in completely different settings during co-design workshops across Europe.

What can I expect?

 

The workshop enables us to see the future of urban Europe through the eyes of city planners. Participants are challenged to envision, create and implement a lighting concept in a prototype installation using the Urban Future matrix as guidance tool.

The format usually includes a:

· Research seminar

· Panel discussion

· Practical workshop

· Prototype design

· Presentation of the prototype installations by the participants.

Urban Futures matrix

 

The Urban Future matrix is a practical tool that helps define your lighting strategy and includes different lighting scenarios. The matrix plots social-cultural drivers against city strategies, followed by the introduction of 16 actionable Urban Futures scenarios. These narratives result in 16 different possibilities for ways cities can evolve in the future.
