Taking as his theme a human approach to light Colin discusses how designing for people and how they feel in different environments leads to the creation of more successful places. He is illustrating his presentation with the lighting designed for some recently completed projects including University of Roehampton Library, UCL Wilkins Terrace, Paddington Lawn, Smythe Library at Tonbridge School and Enterprise Centre, Norwich Research Park.
