Description

Urban lighting imposes a strong visual metaphor for urban pedestrians creating a better understanding of the space by defining it and connecting with its surroundings. Broadway, with its diagonal geometry, interrupts the rigid form of the Manhattan grid. The street contains spaces in which pedestrians, bicycles and automobiles meet, creating multiple layers of complication. This proposal is about defining and coordinating the space visually using light to create a more clearly delineated nocturnal street life by defining boundaries, bringing directionality to the space visually, and creating connection between various modalities of the space.
