Light + Building 2022 – Talk + Tour: Birgit Walter

Needed light at the needed time 
“In an every day more demanding environment (design wise, environmentally and ethically), creating a lighting scheme that allows for the desired design goals while integrating “responsible” lighting schemes becomes of special interest. Within this Talk, we will review possible design strategies as well as currently available technology that contribute to a lighting scheme that takes into account the ethical and environmental issues while achieving the desired design goals.“ Birgit Walter, Founder and Creative Director of BMLD
