UNESCO International Day of Light 2019

The 16th May 2019 will be the second International Day of Light. Celebrated across the world by many different sectors of society, the global initiative focuses on the important role light plays in science, culture, art, education, construction, and in fields as diverse as medicine, communications, and energy.

From light-based technologies to the way it makes us feel, light touches the daily lives of everybody. Appreciating and harnessing its power is fundamental to our development as a society. It not only helps us to grow and innovate but natural light is key to helping us achieve greater energy efficiency in our buildings, creating a more sustainable future for all. 

What does #BeautyOfDaylight mean to you?

To celebrate this crucial resource, Kingspan Light + Air is asking building designers, developers and constructors around the world to share their interpretation of the #BeautyofDaylight for the chance to win 1 of 5 solar-powered speaker light jars! 

Whether it’s the morning light streaming through your office window or something more conceptual, such as the shading on a render, we want you to share an image that encapsulates your interpretation of the beauty of daylight. We will be looking for images with an excellent composition and an original twist.
