Philips Lighting opens £8,300 design prize

  • Comment

Philips Lighting has invited architects to submit urban design projects for its annual ‘city.people.light’ award

The international prize recognises the best projects using lighting to boost night-time identity and cultural heritage.

All types of scheme may enter including single buildings, monumental landmarks and masterplans. Lighting elements must however be permanent and visible to the public.

Last year’s top prize went to a new lighting masterplan for the historic centre of Rietberg (pictured) in Germany designed by Jochen Meyer-Brandis of SMB Aachen.

Second prize went to the Yeoui Central River Park in Seoul and third place was given to the Saint Gervais district lighting scheme in Geneva, Switzerland.

The jury will award first, second and third place awards with the winner taking home £8,300.

The prizes will be announced at the Lighting Urban Community International annual meeting in Dubrovnik, Croatia from 5 to 9 November.  

The winner of the public choice award – decided by an online vote – will also be invited to the ceremony.

The deadline for entries is 31 August.
