Can Designers Combat Light Pollution by Embracing Darkness?

Press/Media: Research

Description

In our over-lit cities, lighting designers are fighting back on behalf of darkness and night—not to mention public space and urban vitality.

This feature article by Akiva Blander for Metropolis magazine examines the importance of questionning our relationship with darkness, drawing on Nick Dunn's research and his book Dark Matters which draws a discursive parallel between the gradual lighting of cities and the ascent of the consumptive city under contemporary neoliberal capitalism.
