The publication Scènes de Nuit examines the role of night in the construction of contemporary cities and societies, illustrating how architectural theory and critique are still associated with sunlight and diurnal paradigms. The result of the eponymous exhibition held at f'ar Lausanne in 2019, this book reflects upon the spaces, activities and media deployed in night culture, using available footage, records and transcriptions as its main display platform.

"Taking pictures by night is very difficult, because you only have 20 minutes, the sun is going down, there is a moment when it is perfect, then it is less perfect, and then you can’t do it, it’s too dark. Because you need to see the outline of the building." Richard Levene, founder of El Croquis. Geneva, 2019
