The discussion continues – Urban Spirit of Light webinar

How can embedding light within urban landscapes promote social interaction of culturally diverse communities?
How can architects, designers and planners deliver a reduction in energy whilst continuing to meet the needs of local residents?
How can inventive lighting schemes transform underlit pockets of urban space?

The lively debate that took place at this year’s RCA Urban Spirit of Light seminar will continue with a webinar on Tuesday 16th October at 4:00pm to allow both UK and international visitors, unable to attend the seminar, the chance to be part of the discussion.

The webinar brings together key speakers to discuss the opportunities and dilemma’s presented to professionals responsible for lighting urban communities. To listen to the debate and have your say, register in advance to attend via: http://bit.ly/QJMBFx
Sponsored by the Megaman Charity Trust Fund, the webinar will include:

– Jeremy Myerson, Helen Hamlyn Professor of Design at the RCA, chairs proceedings

– Mark Sutton Vane, architectural lighting designer, Sutton Vane Associates, discusses the challenges of lighting an urban community and encourages designers and specifiers to think of people, not car-centred, creative solutions

– Megan Charnley and Tom Jarvis (Research Associates at the RCA) discuss findings from ‘In the Shade: Lighting Urban Communities’, their research project carried out in London’s Boundary Estate by the Helen Hamlyn Centre. There is already interest from a range of local authorities in the creative tubular LED lighting solutions applied at the Boundary Estate
