12/06/2020 - Mark will be participating in a webinar, ‘Saving the Night’ as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2020. The webinar will focus on issues around public lighting in London with a particular emphasis on the river. It asks how we might redress the problems of over-lighting, light pollution and ecological impacts created by artificial light while improving the experience of the public realm after dark and supporting the night-time economy. An expert panel, chaired by design guru Stephen Bayley and comprising speakers Alex Lifschutz (Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands), Mark Major (Speirs + Major), Mathew Frith (London Wildlife Trust) and Don Slater (London School of Economics), will participate in a 45-minute online event consisting of a series of short presentations followed by Q&A.
