UDaily: "Green Light" symposium illuminates connections between art and science

The University of Delaware will host a daylong symposium on Friday, Sept. 25, bringing together industry leaders, artists, designers and scholars to explore the future of artificial lighting. “Green Light: Prospects in Lighting Design and Technology” will be held from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Clayton Hall on the University’s Newark campus. Registration, at $55 per person or $25 for full-time students with ID from any institution, is now available at this website.

Urban futures and strategic design consultant Marco Bevolo will deliver the keynote address, “Create the Livable City,” about the approach taken by Philips Lighting’s city.people.light project from its beginning in 1996 through this year.

The international city.people.light award was created by Philips and the LUCI (Lighting Urban Community International) Association to recognize cities, urban planners, architects and lighting designers for projects that maximize sustainability and make cities more livable.
