Solar Lightscapes expands on design research previously undertaken for “Empowering Times Square,” “TOOP” and “5Watts” by exploring ecological lighting solutions for light-controlled tectonics, both architectural and theatrical, using solar-powered light sources, sunlight and high-tech optics and accessories. By extension, PhoScope aims at critiquing and disrupting the use of high-consumption lighting applications and addressing the needs of underserved communities.
