Daylight Symposium program is now on the street

03May 2017

Daylight is vital to our long-term health and wellbeing. Yet, our modern way of living challenges our daily access to daylight and connection to nature, ultimately leading to a daylight deficit.

So what role is left for architects and planners when we are trailing out of sync with natural lighting cycles? How can we rethink buildings so they address challenges posed by modern societies?

These are some of the topics leading architects, researchers and experts from around the world will discuss at the Daylight Symposium, to be held for the 7th time in Berlin.

Keynote speakers
For two days they will collaborate to launch and exchange knowledge, experience and viewpoints on how to bring architecture forward and ensure it nurtures all aspects of human living.

The keynote speakers are:

  • Stefan Behnisch (Germany), Behnisch Architekten, an award-winning architect and advocate of sustainable design - has led the company over the last more than 25 years as a successful international practice with offices in Stuttgart, Munich and Boston.
  • Omar Gandhi (Canada), Omar Gandhi Architects (Canada) is one of Canada’s leading young architecture studios with offices in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Toronto and most recently named one of The Architectural League of New York’s ’Emerging Voices’ of 2016.
  • Anne Lacaton or Jean-Philippe Vassal (France), principals of an award-winning architect firm, Lacaton & Vassal, having made reuse of existing materials and integration of daylighting in standard construction their signature architecture and adding a social dimension to architectural design.
  • Lone Wiggers (Denmark), architect maa and partner in C.F. Møller with offices in Aarhus, Aalborg, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm and London. Wiggers has taken part in a large number of projects with a broadness ranging from housing, domiciles, schools, hospitals, museums to planning and design.
