Lighting can bring it alive or kill it

In SESSION 2: The importance of designing for technology during the early stages of a project

Lighting can bring it alive or kill it

Speaker: Mark Sutton-Vale

Great lighting can transform a good place into a wonderful experience. A place that could have been wonderful can be downgraded by bad lighting. Mark will describe and analyse the good, the bad and the ugly parts of interacting with clients, emphasising the story and the brand, designing the lighting and making it all work. He will talk about costs, energy, sustainability and keeping it working well. He will discuss projects where he designed the lighting such as the London 2012 Olympic Park, a dining and wine tasting attraction and the National Museum of Oman, and will show and discuss projects by other designers. Mark will use his experience of lighting some of the highest profile projects in the world to show how lighting can energise projects and bring them alive.
