“Architectural lighting design is a field within architecture and architectural engineering that concerns itself primarily with the illumination of buildings.”
Architectural design defines spaces and buildings which have shapes able to identify the historical period, the cultural environment and the mark of the designer. This combination of signs and meanings can take on different aspects under changing natural light and during the night thanks to expert use of artificial light, called: architectural lighting.
The aim of architectural lighting is to use light to emphasise the important features of the building and its urban setting, supporting its historic, artistic and social value.
Different places and situations are also handled in architectural lighting in such a way as to create safe conditions for the people there and to promote the image of the city for tourists and residents.
