Re-lighting the Scottish Parliament Building for the LED future

Presentation date: 26. October
Presentation time: 16:15

Kevan Shaw will present the design process involved in re-lighting the Scottish Parliament Building, replacing what was “state-of-the-art” lighting when the building was built in 2004. LED solutions now hold sway. The project takes into consideration architectural lighting, broadcasting lighting, and daylight effects and control. The challenges encountered and users’ response to the realised concepts will also be illustrated.
