Nightscape 2050- a dialogue between Cities-Light-People in the future

What is this Exhibition for?

The emphasis on light and lighting now is more than ever and this is evident from the global initiative by UNESCO to declare and celebrate 2015 as the International Year of Light. With this in mind, Nightscape 2050 is a unique exhibition dedicated to Lighting and is aimed to explore a completely new horizon of lighting design.

This exhibition aims to explore the interactions between people, light, and cities in the year 2050.
“Nightscape” does not just mean the evening view; to us “nightscape = humans and cities at night.”

The emergence of new light sources such as LEDs, OLEDs, and lasers as well as the evolution of lighting-control technology in the 21st century may dramatically change our living environment. At the same time, numerous natural disasters, manmade disasters, and environmental changes have forced a discussion on how to approach energy consumption including how to power lighting.

There have been both optimistic and pessimistic views on the interactions between humans and the use of light.
Endlessly evolving optical technologies have provided us not only the convenience but also the pleasure of freely manipulating light and shadow. On the other hand, the use of artifi cial light has greatly impacted the circadian rhythm of humans and animals, and we now face the problem of light pollution nearly everywhere.

How can lighting design contribute to the creation of “wonderful light enjoyed by all people”?
What can we expect our lighting environment in 2050 to be?

Nightscape 2050 — this is a message from Lighting Planners Associates, a leading architectural lighting design company that is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015.
