The festival will be held from November 28th 2013 until January 19th 2014 in downtown Amsterdam, with ‘Building with light’ as its central theme.
The course from 8. to 19. July, 2013 introduces the culture of daylight, both as an expressive device, and as a technical tool for a sustainable design approach. Artificial light is presented not as an independent topic, but both in its integration with daylight and its increasing capacity as a key component for a positive impact on human well-being. An intensive educational experience set against a backdrop of the Italian Veneto, where partecipants are involved in daylight matter and its design, simulation and integration.

Initially gas lit, the arcade was subsequently illuminated by incandescent lighting and until recently discharge lamps, losing historic fixtures on the way and a legacy in terms of conduits, cabling and defunct equipment. The arcade was purchased in 2010 by Meyer Bergman, who were keen to revive the dignity of the arcade and to re-establish it as a key luxury retail destination.
