Publisher's description: In recent years, new lighting technologies have been used to illuminate cities and towns in creative, energy-efficient ways. Smart Light is now a widely used term for the new technologies and ecological ideas that are transforming nighttime atmospheres and spectacular Smart Light festivals are awing audiences around the world. Featuring more than fifty public artworks, design installations, and architectural elements, SuperLux is a visual celebration of the ingenuity and artistry of the latest lighting technology. The book's three sections focus on projects that use light to animate architecture and media screens; new lighting in former industrial zones and new public areas, including wayfinding and street lighting; and interactive installations in urban spaces. Each is punctuated with essays by leading experts and designers on this remarkable new phenomenon. As our public buildings, public spaces, and even homes become increasingly interactive, intelligent lighting design will become ever more relevant to our lives. SuperLux is an exciting introduction for designers, architects, artists, and anyone intrigued by the power of light.
