Smart Everyday Nighttime Design is an interdisciplinary research project spearheaded by Arup, with Leni Schwendinger and the support of the London School of Economics, Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano and Despacio, iGuzzini, and Findeter, documented by PLANE—SITE. The initiative focused on lighting in the Getsemani neighborhood of Cartagena, Colombia with the intention of improving public health, social life, security and safety in after-dark environment. The research and incorporation of the new lantern system heavily involved the participation of Getsemani residents in an attempt to galvanize the community.
