How can we address the daylight deficit in modern societies? Leading architects, daylight researchers and building professionals from around the world will share ideas on healthy and climate-friendly architecture at the Daylight Symposium in Berlin 3-4 May.

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.

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.

“As our schedules are becoming unique imprints of our lifestyle choices, our building and lighting concepts need to become flexible enough to accommodate conflicting needs where one occupant may go for a blue-light fix along with a double shot espresso while here colleague opts for low color temperature lighting and herbal tea, Christoph Reinhart, MIT, explains.„
