Using Light as Infrastructure: Heritage and Regeneration

25 – 26th March, 2014.
Chester, United Kingdom.

A two-day Conference examining the contemporary uses of light in urban regeneration and heritage contexts.

Conference Day One will present inspirational examples of practical ways in which light has been utilised as a major resource in regeneration schemes internationally. The day will conclude with a practical workshop for delegates, conducted out in the City, exploring solutions to three multiple-use heritage sites in the centre of Chester: the Rows, the city’s unique double tiered covered
shopping walkways, the Historic City walls and Town Hall Square.

Conference Day Two the morning will present detailed and revealing showcases of two civic regeneration schemes in which light has been ‘more useful and cheaper than bollards’. In the afternoon, a practical workshop for delegates will respond to an actual regeneration brief in which light has been at the centre of the solution, concluding with comparisons between the workshop solutions and the actual solution.

Tickets for attendance on one or both days are available online at a flat rate of £45 from the University of Chester. Follow

Places on the evening workshop in the City are limited to 20 delegates on a first come, first served basis.
