LIGHT EDU is a comprehensive programme of educational, informational, research and cultural mediation events in the field of architectural and technical lighting in Romania. The programme was initiated out of the necessity of of long-term substantiation of the lighting design practice in Romania, where there is still a need to raise the awareness of the importance of interior and urban lighting. The symposium is organized by Romanian Order of Architects – Timiș Territorial Branch, in partnership with the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism from Timișoara.
LIGHT EDU Symposium's mission is to create the framework for a sustained dialogue on lighting design, stimulating the polarisation of a group of lighting design professionals and highlighting the importance of light in the perception and definition of architectural spaces. Hence, we propose the diversification and enlargement of the discussion groups in the field of lighting and lighting design in Romania.
LIGHT EDU Symposium 2018 aims to consolidate the educational platform set up at the first edition of the 2016 event, thus making it a further step towards fulfilling the vision of a context in which lighting is understood to be the most direct way of nonverbal communication through which a space can be perceived and one of the most powerful tools for night-time activation of cities.
