The object of the thesis is to propose a new lighting plan for the square Fyristorg in Uppsala, and to describe the process which have led to it. It all started when I choosed the place together with the municipality of Uppsala. I have been doing research and analyzed how the place and it´s existing lighting works both during different times of the day and also in the evening. After researching the place and it´s existing lighting I´ve decided to put up the following goals fot the new lighting design. 1. The general light level of the place shall be experienced as higher than today. 2. The light level of the place shall be adapted to the light levels of surrounding places. 3. The lighting shall be free from glare. 4. The lighting shall be adapted to people passing by. 5.The lighting shall be adapted to the surrounding architecture. 6. The lighting shall strengthen and consider the unique character and beauty of the place. 7. The site shall be functional regardless what activities taking place here. In my sketching phase, I have been researching how to use the design to fulfil these goals. It has led me to base the design on the following themes: 1. Square in moonlight 2. The warm paths 3. The arcs 4. The streaming water 5. Meetings between differences 6. Excitement 7. Adaption to season To get inspiration and references for the technical solutions of the design, I have visited several places in Uppsala, Stockholm and Copenhagen. In the beginning of May I also visited a trade fair for electricity and lighting to meet people from lighting companies to get advices about technical solutions and to make connections. I have had the possibility to try out parts of the design in reality by doing tests with some of the armatures, which has made it easier for me to make decisions about some of the technical solutions. The final lighting design is called "Meeting in moonlight" and it´s essence is the meeting between: 1. The both sides of the river 2. Warm and cold light 3. Different people during different times of the day 4. Shadow and light "Meeting in moonlight" is considered to be a functional design to replace the lighting existing on the square today. The design should be an inspiration for the municipality and the property owners when they want to change the place.
