In early February a seminar and workshop was held in Bangkok. Students and staff from the School of Architecture & Design at King Mongkutt University in Bangkok, from the College of Architecture & Planning at Tongji University in Shanghai, from the QUT Science & Engineering Faculty and from the Illumination Design Program in the Faculty of Architecture Design & Planning at the University of Sydney participated. The basis of the workshop was to provide an intensive course for exterior lighting design divided into 2 parts: 3 days of lectures followed by a 2-day, practical workshop. A site on the Chao Phraya River was selected and some mock-up lighting prepared. One of the major themes of the workshop was sustainable, urban lighting and the workshop results might be incorporated into a proposed river route that will make up a “Bangkok Night Map”.
