I had the pleasure to participate in Leni's important "wake up call" on how we want to develop our cities in the future with the light of safety, excess pollution, energy spill or some combination of experience. Leni brought up many important questions and leaves us in new light. Great work, looking forward to more!

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 :-)
