Light and Building

Light and Building

This March sees the international trade fair for lighting, design and networked building-services technology – with its clear professional orientation – welcome a global audience of over 200,000 to its eighth edition in Frankfurt.

 

Architects and technical planners in particular will find what Light + Building has to offer, with its developments in lighting design and technology, of immense value – a genuinely unmissable insight into a highly innovative and complex field, and one which is changing rapidly. In addition, visitors will be treated to the latest in smart homes, smart powered buildings and security technology.

 

But think smart and start your research before you arrive in Bankfurt (as the locals sometimes like to call it). Make your fair visit as productive as possible by downloading our trusty Architonic Guide Light + Building 2016 now.

 

Architonic’s newsletter for Light and Building 2016 can be read (and subscribed to) here.

Luchtsingel bridge by studio ZUS

There’s something satisfyingly über-utilitarian about a bridge. It gets you from one point to another. But several recently completed bridge projects internationally demonstrate how this workaday construction type can also deliver serious regenerative effects to its surroundings, as well as function as a bold aesthetic or metaphoric statement.

 

We take a Calatrava-free look at a number of new crossings, which literally and figuratively elevate the experience of moving through the public realm. See you on the other side.
