Innovative Urban Lighting – Group 1 | Week 6 |Development of lighting shape

We started week 6 by looking into different forms for the lighting housing, here are some of the designs below.

Y tho? 2Y tho? 3Y tho? 1

From this we talked about pros and cons of each design, it became clear that design 3 matched the gradient of the lighting element we were using and also blocked direct light glare to canal users.

From this we created a 1:1 model of this design to see how it would work at the correct scale.


Also this week, we went to site at night to test out the reflections created in the water by different lighting, both colour and white. It was interesting to see the interaction the light had to the water, and the different types of reflections cast depending on the angle the light was placed at.
