An excellent event, and a great way to build up collaboration between Configuring Light/LSE and Leni's NIghttime Design Initiative. Also very interesting for us - the home team - to really focus on the immediate surrounds of LSE... The event also set off some interesting ripples: lighting really does bring together very diverse people and it is a pleasure watching the conversations develop!

Thank you Lenni and LSE team for organising this! The presentation was really insightful, our walk and interactions thought provoking. Rediscovering familiar places through light and new encounters was perfect for the end of the day!

The Nightseeing Tour of London's streets for the International Day of Light was a truly wonderful exploration into the multi-faceted world of light and shadow, in relation to the city. Just as urban design is becoming more sensitive to people's behaviour and comfort at daytime, it must be equally considered at night. Leni Schwendinger (and team) were great at explaining the impact and atmosphere created by different light sources, as we trailed the streets at night, discussing everything from blinking warning lights to twinkling cafe candles. At the end of the tour, the importance of designing nighttime cities from a holistic perspective that considers all sources of light, as they relate to each other and relate to people's end-of-day activities, was undeniable. I hope more architects/designers/planners get the chance to experience the shades of night through Leni's eyes.

Thanks for the fabulous nighttime walk through Covent Garden, Leni. I loved focusing on the light in the city, and was amazed to learn of all the gas lights still shining throughout London. Now I feel closer to Dickens' city :-)

As Perth aims to deliver its five year City of Light Action Plan it was a pleasure to take the trip down to London to join Leni on the NightSeeing walking event. A fantastic way to meet and speak to people from a variety of backgrounds all with a shared interest in Light and its role in benefiting our cities in social inclusion, economic impact and safety. Leni’s energy and passion and humour shines through and her experience in the field make this event entertaining as well as highly informative. Approaches to the design and delivery of lighting involving the community to drive pride and a sense of ownership while not unique as a means in consultation were very interesting as with the tour itself in appreciating all aspects of light and how they work together or in a lot of respects don’t. If you have the opportunity to host this event or go to it in the future I would highly recommend.
