Speirs and Major Associates win IALD Radiance Award again!

14 May 2009 12.00 BST


(USA) - UK lighting design practice Speirs and Major Associates has been awarded the IALD International Lighting Design Awards’s top honour, the Radiance Award for Excellence in Lighting Design, for the second year running. The award was given to the designers in recognition of their lighting of the lobby and atrium of the Foster and Partners-designed office development – 3 More London Riverside, London, UK.

In 2008, Speirs and Major Associates were also winners of the Radiance Award, for their work on Barajas International Airport’s new terminal, Madrid, in collaboration with Rogers, Stirk, Harbour and Partners.

It turned out to be an exceptional night for Britain as Graham Rollins of Lighting Design International won an Award of Excellence for his work at Limerick Spa, Ireland. Speirs and Major Associates also picked up two Awards of Merit and a Special Citation.

The two Awards of Merit were for the nighttime branding of David Chipperfield’s BBC Scotland Headquarters in Glasgow, UK and the interior illumination of the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan, Al Nahyan Mosque, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The Special Citation was given in acknowledgement of their contribution to the Beijing Capital International Airport – also a Foster and Partners project.

Director Mark Major commented: "We were particularly pleased that the lighting of the atrium at 3 More London Riverside not only received an Award of Excellence but also the Radiance Award. It seems to confirm that simple, elegant, well-considered lighting can win through against even the best of competition. We hope that the scheme demonstrates how the illumination of a common project type, such as an office atrium, can be inspiring, uplifting and add considerable visual value even on a modest budget.”
