Architecture Featured LED Research Urban Lighting


This project about the use of LED in Copenhagen’s urban lighting is one of four that were conducted as part of the project entitled LED Lighting; Interdisciplinary LED Lighting Research. The research project has been a three-year collaboration between The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts; Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation and The IT University of Copenhagen.

In this project, we have taken an interest in the increasing use of LEDs as a light source in urban spaces, and the ways that the application of LEDs in the city’s street lighting will shape the experience of the street. The studies are based on a mapping of the street lighting in the Municipality of Copenhagen as it existed in the early summer of 2014. The results are considered as a kind of overview and conservation of Copenhagen’s street lighting as it existed during the project in order to discuss the importance of the next initiatives to be undertaken using LEDs.
In connection with the work undertaken throughout the project, we would like to thank Professor of the Technical Coordinator of Lighting at the Municipality of Copenhagen, Thomas Maare, Professor of Urban Planning Jens Kvorning, Freddy Degn/Philips, Claus Jensen/ Louis Poulsen, and all the LED Lighting; Interdisciplinary LED Lighting Research project members.
