New London Architecture

NightSeeing™, lighting design and placemaking in the City

Thursday 15 October 2020

Explore the dark side of the City of London virtually. Traverse this tour, by way of photos and commentary, with Leni Schwendinger, Creative Director and Founder, NightSeeing™, and other lighting design experts including Dr Elettra Bordonaro, Founder and Creative Director, Light Follows Behaviour and Clarisse Tavin Group Manager, Major Projects and Programmes, City of London.

The City after dusk is a surprisingly different experience than during the day . This online webinar presented the views of lighting and placemaking experts on the relevance of the vernacular light versus careful illumination design to transform the urban night-time.
