  • NightSeeing | Leni Schwendinger Light Projects | United States

    NIGHTSEEING™ CLIENTS ​ Architecture/Engineer/Construction Industry Architects and Planners Landscape Architects Urban Designers Lighting Designers Municipalities Department of Transportation and Public Works Department of Planning Department of Sustainability Tourist Board Business Improvement Districts I had the pleasure to participate in Leni's important "wake-up call" on how we want to develop our cities in the future. Leni brought up many important questions and leaves us in new light. Great work, looking forward to more! –– NightSeeing™ attendee (Times Square) Despite the Covid-induced constraints of a Zoom talk, through a virtual 'walk' through the City of London Leni was still able to artfully show the fundamental importance and advantages of night to our sense of place and understanding of our urban surrounds. –– Virtual NightSeeing™ attendee (London) Book an Online Tour www.nightseeing.net Light Projects and NightSeeing™ together comprise a platform for locally engaged, inspiring nights. By identifying the needs and wants of your constituents we drill down to the real needs of nighttime lighting so that community gets on board. Districts undergoing improvements often neglect 50% of the 24-hour day. The hours between dusk and dawn can be a concern – for safety, lack of activity (dead zones) or too much activity (bars and late-night noise). Our job is to work with stakeholders solve these challenges. NightSeeing™, Navigate Your Luminous City, is a staged program in one, two or three parts Walking: raise awareness and elevate the vocabulary of light, Workshopping: build consensus for future nighttime objectives Strategizing: develop an action plan to implement local night and light projects Leni takes your audience through an immersive LightWalk experience, decoding the shadows twinkling lights of the city to open minds and hearts to the potential of your urban night.

  • Sustainable, Smart Lighting | Leni Schwendinger Light Projects | United States

    SMART LIGHTING CLIENTS Architecture/Engineer/Construction Industry: Planners Municipalities Department of Transportation and Public Works Department of Planning Department of Sustainability Business Improvement Districts To launch the Capital District Smart Lighting Guidebook project, your NightSeeing™ tour was a unique and illuminating experience. As a transportation planner, it was the first time I looked at light and its function as part of the urban form and transportation system. I now think about light as a design and safety tool, and plan to use what I’ve learned in future transportation planning initiatives. –– Client The union of energy saving, responsive technologies, ownership of data and infrastructure is an ongoing debate. Issues of public space equity and social cohesion is in flux. We navigate these challenges with you. City night innovation starts with street lighting conversion to low-wattage, long-life LED which in turn boosts your city’s contribution to sustainability by reducing energy consumption and helps the economy by saving costs for replacements and maintenance. Beyond the basics of energy and cost-saving opportunities to enable streamlined government services, increase community involvement in civic design, and create enhanced nighttime placemaking are activated by our expert – and thoughtful – approach to smart technologies. Leni Schwendinger’s team is galvanized to assist cities to assess and strategize their next move to innovative lighting.
