There is a quality outdoor lighting system illuminating the streets of Puerto de la Cruz in Spain’s Canary Islands. 6000 luminaires crafted so light does not spill upwards and wash out the view of the area’s famous night skies.
In the commercial sector, cash rebates from utilities and energy-efficiency organizations remain a popular incentive for lighting upgrades. In 2018, 79 percent of the United States is covered by an active lighting rebate program. Lighting, however, is undergoing a major technology shift to LEDs, digitization and connectivity. This has had a profound impact on rebate programs.
Organised by Lighting magazine, lightspace is a unique exhibition of innovation, discussion and inspiration which brings architects and the lighting design community together to share ideas and inspiration.
