"Who loves and then leaves?" Social Lightscape Workshop Series

By Configuring Light (LSE) in partnership with iGuzzini

In the framework of LIGHT EDU Symposium, Elettra Bordornaro and Don Slater, two members of the interdisciplinary research programme Configuring Light (London School of Economics), will coordinate a workshop on social research in design, an interactive process of “understanding a space in its complexity”.

Social research in design can play a crucial role in regenerating and activating the current situation in the area of Piața Sinaia: a neglected historical public space in which lighting, despite its potential centrality, only plays a marginal role in the creation of public urban life.

With a specific focus on socio-spatial analysis, the workshop will be acting as an introduction class to this methodology. Based on the conclusions of the outcome study, the lighting design interventions will be developed at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism during the first semester, with eLearning support from Configuring Light.
