ESSAY 

What about the quality
of nocturnal life at the
local scale?

As well, city centres represent only a small portion of the
land. What about the quality of nocturnal life at the local
scale? There are so many questions to consider: urban
identity and belonging, mobility and accessibility, social
inclusion for our aging population, and the sustainability
of the work we do. We need to invite researchers and
professionals to innovate, to renew the way we light cities.
And we need to sensitize politicians and major actors in the
design of architecture and cities: they need to be involved in
these debates at a time when lighting is often reduced to a
propaganda tool.

This reveals the need for lighting design firms - and
more generally, design-related firms - to bring new
researchers into their projects. The illumination of cities
and the development of nocturnal planning strategies
raise questions about the uses of light, but debates often
remain focused on the technical aspects of lighting, or
on festive lighting in downtown areas. Lighting is still
seen mainly from an aesthetic perspective without due
consideration of how people use the city at night. Our
gaze is very seldom turned to everyday landscapes,
landscapes that stay in the shadows, or the sociocultural elements of nighttime.

FROM A NEED FOR RECOGNITION
TO A NEED FOR THE RENEWAL
At an academic level, research is still in its infancy, and
in practical terms, lighting design professionals are still
little recognized. Yet the lighting designer profession is
intrinsically open and transdisciplinary; notably, lighting
design questions increase our understanding of issues
in such diverse fields as health, the environment and
city networking, and have led to a further integration
among professionals.
The integration of social and cultural issues remains difficult.
Yet light is relevant to all of our living spaces; it concerns all
professionals. If the main objective is to improve the quality
of our nocturnal living environment, isn't it time for our
discipline to fully incorporate the design of the night?
