This paper presents our research objectives about dynamic lighting as a tool to achieve amenity in open space. We are currently reviewing theory and technology and we outline our main research methodology. We aim to study how dynamic lighting patterns can impact on amenity and people’s engagement in public space, oriented towards a sustainable development, and then to create a parametric tool that demonstrates these dynamic lighting patterns as visual salient objects in public space.
