HOW TO BE BRILLIANT: the role of lighting design in 'Placemaking'
by LAURA PHILLIPS, ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR AT ARUP
Laura has over 25 years lighting design experience and has worked for a number of independent lighting design practices in the US and UK before moving into multi-disciplinary practice. She led the lighting group at Buro Happold for 8 years and joined Arup Lighting in 2018 to pursue her interest in collaborative working and research led design.
There are presently many challenges facing how we design for the built environment such as climate change, migrating populations, increased life expectancy and our ever-changing digital landscape. How do lighting professionals respond to these challenges in their work to ensure ‘places’ are created that promote positive behaviours, social interaction, identity and benefits to society. What is the lighting consultant’s role in shaping the public realm?
Laura will discuss her work in this field and a series of projects around this topic, including University of Glasgow public realm and the V&A Dundee. She will share some ideas and the Arup ‘Shades of Night’ tool which is used with clients and design collaborators to analyse spaces during the design process. The talk will include some audience participation, so be ready to get involved.
Join Laura and become part of the How To Be Brilliant Edinburgh community on Wednesday 27 March.
