9 & 10.12 | The intimate side of Lighting
Anastasia Philippopoulou | Architectural Lighting, MSc Light and Lighting UCL, Architect NTUA
S2PiA architects – Panos Papassotiriou | BA(Hons) DipArch(Hons) ARB RIBA
Light as an element to narrate architecture. Light lays emphasis, prioritizes, underlines architectural design in order to bring out the best out of space, scale, construction, materials. Light renders colours, releases textures, creates volume. Light connects to place and time. Spaces are characterized according to lighting. Intimate places resist to homogenius, diffuse lighting. Scale and proximity defines personal space.

11 & 12.12 | Lighting landscapes
Dr Antonis Skordilis | Landscape Architect, Doctor of Plant Ecology UA,
DANILOF light + perception – Thanos Danilof |  Architectural Lighting Designer

Nights-capes formulated through light. At night the story of the landscape is narrated by lighting. Light re-evaluates depth and volume of space. Light generates motion. Light is the element to create new interrelations between background and foreground. Light modulates perception. Light navigates. Darkness allows view. Presence and absence. A coherent unity that unveils the mystery of a landscape… just like walking under the moonlight.

11 & 12.12 | Daylight as a source of design inspiration
Dr Doulos Labros | Associate Professor, Lighting technology in human centric environment
Mariza Galani | Lighting Designer
As we spent 80% of our time in interior environment, artificial light has a dominant role to deliver qualities like movement, orientation, color, intensity, feeling in order to create a perfect bond between us and nature. Technology is the facilitator to breathe life into lighting, bringing the right light at the right time. Artificial lighting communicating natural phenomena, imitates the cycle of day in order to enhance the circadian rhythm and entrain our body into a geophysical 24-h day. Lighting embodying automation ameliorates working conditions and creates flexible scenarios that provide a better living and a pleasant indoor environment.

13 & 14.12 | Lighting for Emotion
eDje – Julie Spartinou Patroni | Architect, RIBA III Ma RCA Arch. Ba(Hons) TEE
Katerina Skalkou | Architect MSc AUTH, Mphil NTUA, Lighting designer MA HOU, Adjunct Professor
Christina Thanassoula | Stage Lighting designer, MA (RCSSD), BA (EKPA)
“Light in the plate”. The restaurant is theatre. Light in the plate is the idea to locate light only on the scene. Light is never trivial and it is always used in a theatrical way. It is a cinematographic light. Characters seem to be coming out from darkness. Food is illuminated in a wonderful way and faces of people are illuminated in a indirect way upwards. Sensuality becomes the fundamental component of the project and light becomes an ingredient of the kitchen.
