Abstract [en]

By departure from the complexity of senses involved in our human condition, to the urban reality expressed in spatial and social events, the night time sensitivity of the urban realm is here investigated. This paper aims at proposing the consideration of additional five urban senses related to Light and Lighting in the outdoor urban public space, from a design perspective, trying to explore a problem-setting strategy and away from case-studies analysis, but future oriented.
