event of the year

Create the Liveable City workshop

Join the next generation of lighting experts. The Create the Liveable City workshop is an annual event that brings together architects, urban planners and lighting designers to discuss and exchange ideas on 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 at 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 a 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 Futures matrix is a practical tool that helps define your lighting strategy and includes different lighting scenarios. The matrix plots socio-cultural drivers against city strategies, and this is followed by the introduction of 16 actionable Urban Futures scenarios. These narratives result in 16 different possible ways cities can evolve in the future.
