Join APBP for the exciting webinar on lighting innovations. The panel will identify promising technological innovations in lighting, including smart/adaptive lighting, LEDs, bollard lighting, and programmable lighting.

We'll discuss the potential adverse environmental impacts and controversial aspects of lighting enhancements and explain methods of prioritizing lighting improvements. And, we'll examine case studies from UC Davis with a campus-wide exterior lighting retrofit and from Seattle on their experience in planning and implementing pedestrian scale lighting.


APBP's November calendar image is courtesy of Greg Raisman/Portland Bureau of Transportation. Very large light masts create “moon lighting” in Maggie Daley Park in Chicago, IL. There are 13 lights that take the place of hundreds and provide consistent lighting throughout the park. Their mass gives an illusion of massive archways as you walk through this new, heralded park.
