title Perceiving, Orientating and Moving in Urban Spaces during Night-time
source Motion, E-Motion and Urban Space [Proceedings of the 7th European Architectural Endoscopy Association Conference / ISBN-10: 3-00-019070-8 - ISBN-13: 978-3-00-019070-4], pp. 165-177
summary Light is one of our essences of living and at the same time it is one of the mediums to perceive our environment, to orientate and to move even in unknown spaces. Above all other senses our guiding sense is the sense of seeing - during daytime. But how do we orientate and move when daylight has gone and when street lights and shop-windows light urban spaces instead of the sun? In that case the position and the cone of light determines how far the space ahead is visible to us. Does the sense of seeing intensify its guiding function for moving or wil one of the other senses step foreward when the range of sight becomes smaller?
