Peterborough's Wooden Columns
Matthew Fisher EngTech AMILP - Assistant Lighting Engineer, Peterborough Highway Services
A case study on the challenges encountered during the design and implementation of a lighting scheme within a tree lined avenue using wooden clad columns in Peterborough City Centre.
Design of an (almost) switch free home
Marcus Steffen BEng MIET - Director of MS Lighting Design
Marcus will discuss a case study in which the brief was for the client to not have to use switches in their day to day home life. The lighting controls were to be tailored to their differing needs throughout the day and night and operated by occupancy sensors while also allowing occasional modification for special events or exceptions situations. The paper will go into depth about the complexities and nuances of designing an automated control scheme for a residential property as opposed to a commercial system. It will give an overview of necessary functions all systems should have and potential pitfalls of this process. It will also discuss common processes to put in place to allow the system to function without having an experienced maintenance team on site as you might have in commercial properties.
Paper details to be confirmed
Cambridge e-Lumiate Festival
Alessandra Caggiano - Director, e-Luminate Cambridge Festival
The e-Luminate Cambridge Festival, www.e-luminatefestivals.co.uk/, is the city's light festival celebrating its 5th anniversary next year. Over 6 nights in February, the event invites the public to discover the city of Cambridge in a new light displaying a unique spectacle of ephemeral light art installations playing with the richness and diversity of the urban landscape, and transforming the city.
The theme for 2017 is PLAY OF LIGHT - a co-curation between Alessandra Caggiano and Pat Kane. In the arts, we are used to the idea that words, materials or colours are items for playing around with. And in general - from psychology and neuroscience - we are beginning to understand how important play is for human development, not just in childhood but throughout our lifespans. But in this year’s e-Luminate Cambridge Festival, we want to take what seems like a rare opportunity to consider “the play of light” itself. How can we think about, and use, light’s powers and potentials - in order to unlock an invigorating spirit of playfulness in our lives? And vice versa: how can play bring more illumination to us, in all ways? We will explore the games that scientists and artists have played with light (eg, James Clerk Maxwell’s light-poems, David Hockney’s constant investigations into art and light). And there will be a playful emphasis on interacting, customising and taking sheer pleasure across all our exhibits and performances.
After the technical seminar is finished the YLP & London and South East Region would like to invite all attendees to the papers to join us for a unique networking opportunity. To meet new people & greet old friends. Discuss the papers and the industry in general, but also to indulge in refreshments and nibbles
Event finishes at 16:30.
