A blog on K-LITE
Urban lighting affects human perception and enhances the functionality of spaces. Innovative use of lighting techniques has the potential to transform nightscapes and create appealing city vistas. The perception of safe and unsafe zones through the stretch of Ar. Gita Balakrishnan’s journey to Dhaka is largely driven by the varying quality of lighting. There have been multiple examples of well-designed lighting in urban spaces which proved instrumental in enhancing night-time activities with extended hours of social or commercial bustle while highlighting the unique character of the environment. Efficient lighting enhances the notion of safety thereby encouraging people to claim their public spaces.
The quality of the lighting is affected by a number of factors- the type of light, orientation, colors, and intensity. Unplanned artificial lighting can result in light pollution, adversely affecting the quality of space, whereas well-designed, sustainable, and energy-efficient lighting impact the community positively. This brings our attention back to the power of design in bettering the lives of people at large. Hence, it becomes essential for architects, designers, and organisations, to go out to the larger community to reinforce the role of good design in improving lives. Architects and designers are essential to designing this responsive interface with the concepts of sustainable development.
