Call for applications for Urban Landscapes / Social Nightscapes workshop

1 August 2014 10.00 BST

(UK) - Workshop in London on social research and lighting design hosted by Configuring Light and Social Light Movement research programme at LSE Cities and sponsored by iGuzzini.

The Configuring Light research programme at LSE Cities has received the HEIF5 Knowledge Exchange and Impact funding from the LSE to host a five-day workshop between lighting design professionals, architects and designers and social scientists in a London space on 13-17 October 2014.

This workshop will equip design professionals with the social research methods they need to create more ‘social designs' in their daily practices and extend the adoption of social research in design processes to create better urban environments.

The workshop will be co-led by Configuring Light's project partner the Social Light Movement, and will focus on a lighting design intervention , to help improve outdoor spaces at Peabody's Whitecross Estate in Islington. Technical sponsorship and support is being provided by iGuzzini.

The workshop lasts for five full days and has three elements: a training component for social research methods in design, a research and design component where designers create a new lighting concept in collaboration with the estate's community, and a symposium on the final day (17th October 2014) where the lighting concept will be presented to the Peabody and other stakeholders and invited guests. Because of the workshop's structure, participants are expected to attend the workshop for all five days.

LSE Cities are currently seeking applications from lighting design professionals as well as practising architects and designers interested and experienced in lighting design issues to get involved with the workshop. If you or your organisation would like to join, please see ‘How to apply’ below.
