Article in LUX Magazine: “The way that urban spaces, such as social housing estates, are lit reinforce the increasing levels of inequality faced by cities says a new report by scientists based at the London School of Economics. According to the research, the over-illumination of social housing estates – to allow for better CCTV surveillance and the prevention of anti-social behaviour and crime – mark some spaces out as less valuable and even threatening or risky, deterring people from using and enjoying these spaces. In contrast, in more affluent neighbourhoods or expensive designer developments, light is used as a design tool to create an aesthetically pleasurable nightscape which appears valuable, safer and more inviting.”
