Invigorating Infrastructure with Dynamic Lighting
As used in infrastructure projects, the possibilities associated with dynamic lighting now extend far beyond way finding or statement making.
New technologies have made it possible to transform static fixtures into story telling opportunities; surfaces that adapt to time, season, weather, and more – while influencing and improving user awareness, engagement, and behaviour.
Titled ‘Invigorating Infrastructure with Dynamic Lighting’, this CPD Live session examines the use of lighting to transform and enhance existing assets. Citing recent examples, our speakers explain how emerging technologies have empowered them to push boundaries, challenge conventional methodologies, and break new ground.
They outline all the relevant design considerations, technical challenges, and regulations, and in so doing, identify the surest pathways to success in projects of this type.
By the end of this session, you should be able to:
- Outline the ways lighting systems are typically incorporated into infrastructure projects
- Explain the ways dynamic lighting can be used to enhance existing assets
- Outline the regulations and standards that apply to the use of dynamic lighting in infrastructure projects
- Identify design challenges associated with projects of this type along with the best ways to overcome them
