URBAN LIGHTSCAPES/SOCIAL NIGHTSCAPES was an exhibition of photographs, videos and documents that showcased a five-day workshop around lighting design and social research. The workshop was hosted by the LSE Cities research programme Configuring Light/Staging the Social in collaboration with the Social Light Movement and Peabody.

The URBAN LIGHTSCAPES/SOCIAL NIGHTSCAPES workshop took place on Peabody’s Whitecross estate in Islington, London, in October 2014 and piloted the practical integration of social research into the public lighting design process. 25 lighting design professionals, architects and planners from eleven countries participated in social research training and lighting design exercises to develop new public lighting design interventions for the estate based on social research.

The exhibition ran from 27 January – 20 February.

URBAN LIGHTSCAPES/SOCIAL NIGHTSCAPES is funded by LSE HEIF5 Knowledge Exchange and Impact funding. Technical sponsorship and support has kindly been provided by iGuzzini.
