The hours from dusk to dawn, in public space, deserve a special urban planning and design approach. During the virus pandemic, with focus on essential labor — medical, transit, cleaning, call centers, to name a few — cities’ human, humming engine, nighttime design is critical.
However, for public space design teams, urban lighting design is seldom listed as a key service with line-item fee budgets. Therefore primes consult with fixture representatives and engineers rather than peer designers.
Welcome to my economic program especially to enhance structure, infrastructure and site design: Pre-design and Design – Stage 1. Full service concept to construction administration is also available, see Design – Stages 2 and 3.
