  4. 4. This central, open air space between the exhibition space and the common facilities isconceived as a urban activator. The ephemeral construction that is to be built at the Eme3Plaza is the result of an open call for projects, and it will be announced in the few days.The main activities here will be during the night, from noon until 1:00AM, when the festivalfinishes its diary activities. Live music, performance events and film screenings are someof the contents of the programme of this space." Common facilities2
  5. 5. The festival sessions during the day will take place mainly in the interior of the formerindustrial facilities. Four days of interchange and debate, lectures and talks. The interior ofthe building has been recently renovated and the lighting design in this space will createan interplay between the restoration and the history of the building and its structure.Daylight analysis and control will be fundamental in this case.Following the activities in the auditorium, different scenes will be programmed usingcontrol systems by our technological partners and sponsors." Access to the facilities, façade and outdoor lightingOnced defined the main point of view of the Plaza, guided by the winning design, wewould be able to stablish an architectural “backdrop” for the activities, and lit it up inconsequence using outdoor projectors and equipment. The access to Fabra i CoatsCultural facilities will be light up to communicate the event to the surrounding area. Thework in designing a “corporate lightscape” for the event will give opportunity to thestudents to practice with the potential that light has as a means of communication.3

  7. 7. This space has been partially renovated and will host the exhibition of the architectural andsocial projects displayed at Eme3 2013 Edition. During the month of July, the exhibition willremain open and the lighting design here will act in two aspects: daylight control andinstallation design. Here is where the most creative side of the work of the participants willplay its part, with unconventional and experimental solutions.Welcome!What we propose is to bring an opportunity to live a practical experience in light planning,based in a real and motivating case study. Many aspects of the work of a professionallighting designer/planner are included in this project. Everyone is invited to join and enjoythe different situations that this complex case study has to offer. No worries aboutproduction issues, we’ve done this kind of things before... The workshop includes a lot ofhands-on practice and focuses in the playful, personal experience with light that will helpyou reinforce your knowledge about how light really works in practice. We will bring thetime and space for this to happen, in an architectural context full of history (and future).The “preview” sessions are open to everybody and will be live-streamed on the internet, soparticipants would have a fundamental introduction to the characteristics of the project.
