Turning off street lights at an arbitrary time...
I lead the nighttime design/global lighting urbanist initiative in Arup’s’ lighting team developing aesthetic illumination practices for complex urban settings.
I have over 20 years of experience creating illuminated environments, products and programs for public spaces. One of my proudest achievements has been planning and designing implementation projects. For example, the 82nd Street Partnership Lighting Strategy which was a roadmap for illumination and community-building. This work developed creative concepts for a diverse neighbourhood in New York City blighted by an elevated train overpass – all informed by active community engagement.
My work is shared through speaking engagements and advisory services. I have lectured and taught widely throughout the United States, Latin America, Europe and Japan.
