The future of architectural lighting is projection mapping. It combines abilities of traditional lighting with the ability of media screens. Outdoor projectors are so effective, that they can beat traditional lighting fixtures on price while adding amazing amount of creative possibilities. This new era of light design will transform the architectural lighting industry, as it offers much more than just visual lighting – it is also a high resolution media platform, that can cover infinite surfaces and will find its use in experiential marketing, digital ooh advertising and digital signage.
By projecting images onto buildings one can also create amazing art. Outdoor projectors are equipped with projection mapping software. Meaning that you can use a simple app to control what’s being projected. You can apply various lighting design effects to architectural projection , which is similar to how Photoshop is used to edit photographs.

In enables architects and light designers to create illumination in a completely new way. Now you can seamlessly transcend from light, to texture, augmented reality, media and back to light. Size of the projection is unlimited as well the use shapes and graphics. The only limiting factor in the future of illumination is your fantasy.
