LIGHT EDU Symposium 2016

3 October, 2016 - 5 October, 2016

LIGHT EDU Symposium 2016: Platform for Information Exchange in the Field of Technical and Architectural Lighting

The LIGHT EDU Symposium 2016 takes place on 3-5 October, in the framework of Timisoara Architecture Biennial. By exploring the creative means for lighting design in connection to the flow of technical innovations, the Timis Branch of the Order of Architects in Romania in partnership with the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism in Timisoara generate a first action in this direction by organising this symposium in Timisoara.

Right to Light – Mastering Light for an improved Experience

The theme of the symposium – ‘Right to Light’ – has emerged in response to the current local context, characterized rather by the absence of dialogue in negotiating lighting issues and the lack of awareness regarding the importance of interior and urban lighting. Lighting is the fastest and most direct way of non-verbal communication through which a space can be perceived, being the most important design element that affects the visual assessment of a space. At urban level, light is becoming one of the most powerful tools to breathe life into cities at night. Identifying the need to participate in the formation of a rigorous profession of lighting experts and of an agenda for creating meaningful experiences in architecture with light, LIGHT EDU Symposium enrolls in an action of engagement of a substantive dialogue.


LIGHT EDU Symposium includes a series of presentations by world-renowned lighting specialists, grouped into three sections: Innovations in lighting engineering, creativity of interior and urban lighting design and regulations and standards. These issues will be addressed through presentations of professional experiences from lighting design, engineering and architectural practices, as well as lighting education and light art fields.

The symposium is open to all people from the lighting profession who want to keep learning about the complexity of light. Next to the LIGHT EDU Symposium 2016, there are several contemporary exhibitions documenting lighting interventions in the built environment, dialogue-engaging narratives on light and darkness and perceptual explorations of light and colour. Hosted by TRIADE Interart Foundation, the exhibition will open on the 3rd October and can be explored until 14th October, between 10:00-18:00.
