Illumination scheme for the Peterbos social housing in Anderlecht (Brussels)

The illumination scheme for the Peterbos housing estate is a good illustration of Isabelle CORTEN’s concerns; namely how to make the every day night-time environment of the “forgotten estates” attractive and reassuring. The lighting of pathways, of vegetation, of building entrances, with “the right light in the right place” all improve the entire estate.
