The “Lighting Visions: Light, Space and Nature” event organized by the KTH Lighting Laboratory is aiming to gather and reinforce connections between Swedish and International renowned professionals and researchers in the field of daylight, electric lighting and built environment. We consider the “Lighting Visions” event at KTH Main Campus as a yearly update amongst established and future key players in related fields. This year it forms part of the Dome of Visions project at KTH main campus in Stockholm. It is an opportunity to discuss the effects of the interaction of light, lighting and architecture on health in the domestic, work and public realm and allows having a closer look on its subsequent effects on energy consumption and challenges in lighting design. The ultimate goal is to keep the discussion fresh and move it forward in order to promote interdisciplinary reflection and application of research results in the design of the built environment in the future.
