NEW YORK CITY
The City Lights competitions was sponsored by the City of New York to develop a new generation of lights for public spaces.
The proposal envisioned a kit of parts that would allow the development of a wide range of luminaires adaptable to streets and pedestrian spaces of every scale. The angled luminaire heads could be installed in a conventional “downturned” configuration for typical streets as well as an “upturned” configuration that could create a more celebratory quality in the city’s most iconic thoroughfares. At night, luminaire heads would emit a subtle glow, creating a sense of procession to complement their more utilitarian illumination function.
