Light Zone City: Light Planning in the Urban Context.
van Santen, Christa.
Light Zone City: Light Planning in the Urban Context.
The city at night is de?ned by light. A well-lit urban space can be inviting, giving visitors a sense of well-being and security. A successful nighttime lighting design can also give a city its own identity and accentuate certain architectural qualities. At the same time, an overabundance of light sources can result in light pollution and spatial confusion. In Light Zone City author Christa van Santen uses her many years of experience as a practitioner and teacher of lighting design to articulate basic planning rules for the outdoor lighting of buildings, traf?c routes, and squares. In preparation for this guide to urban lighting design, she visited ten European cities-including Paris, Brussels, Berlin, London, Budapest, Vienna, and Amsterdam-with different urban conditions. Light Zone City presents different planning and design tasks systematically and uses each to illustrate speci?c solutions. Van Santen also explains new arti?cial lighting systems and outdoor lamps through numerous examples.
