ALD İstanbul is an international conference which is focused on architectural lighting design. The first event will take place in 2010 and will be organized biannually. The purpose of ALD İstanbul is to bring all players of the architectural lighting industry together and to create a theoretical and practical thinking platform within Turkey and near geography such as Russia, Ex-soviet Unions, Middle East, South Europe etc...

The event will host internationally successful architects and lighting designers. Through the presentations and discussions participants will find the opportunity to see recently completed projects related to light and it''s applications. Further the presentations available, ALD Istanbul offers a wide range of content. Cultural background is important for lighting design and for its perception. As same colours can have different meaning in different cultures, the use of the light changes too. In this context, the Pecha Kucha night dealing with the issue `Lighting Design and Culture`, will provide lighting designers coming from different continents and cultures the platform to share their experiences on 20 slides x 20 seconds basis.

This interactive night accompanied by a cocktail will be followed by an outdoor lighting installation based on the concept `Play Ground` designed by Turkish lighting designers.

Why should you participate?
Light and architectural lighting design is an issue, which gains on importance and grows to be perceived by more people. Meanwhile the psychological and physiologic impacts of the light on human beings and its contribution to life quality are being understood. On the other side, with the global warming and the energy crisis, the focus is given on lighting, which consumes approximately 25-30% of energy costs.

Within the construction industry the consciousness on light and lightning continues to develop as well. To ensure the entire process to run in a sound way, it is important, that all architectural lighting professionals (architects, interior designers, electric engineers, urban planners, project coordinators, public authorities etc.) come together. ALD Istanbul provides this environment. The event invites the experts of this field to Turkey to enable the professionals to follow new trends and technologies. With this unique concept, ALD Istanbul will fill an important gap within this geography.
