Lighting Design  at KTH is a division at KTH Architecture since January 2017.
In this timeframe we have developed intense collaborations with architects and engineers and the interest on lighting design could not be higher.

5 - 7 december 2018, Stockholm, Sweden

The Light Symposium is a biannual event hosted by the Lighting Design department, KTH, and Wismar University. KTH hosted two very successful sessions in 2010 and 2015, when we celebrated the UNESCO Year of Light in Stockholm.

The topic of this year’s event is Light and Architecture: Multi-sensory experiences. It reflects our interest in theoretical and applied knowledge about light and lighting in the architectural context. It also highlights the importance of a multidisciplinary design approach which includes all senses (haptics, sound, taste, … ) in order to cover the environmental factors affecting perception and health in architecture.

We hope that you will be part of an inspired audience of architects, designers, engineers and companies to discuss the latest innovation in the lighting field.
