Speirs & Major have lit up several iconic museums, malls, airports and bridges around the globe. Principal Keith Bradshaw outlines the potential on offer for clients that make world-class lighting a priority.

While commercial and public sector organisations have driven the adoption of lighting innovations such as LEDs, how have homeowners reacted to the latest lighting trends? Our panel looks at the likely future trends for intimate domestic settings.

We've brought some of the biggest names in household fixtures and equipment together to discuss the likely impact of tomorrow’s technology and how it will affect the function of kitchens and bathrooms in the future.

Cities all over the globe are facing a population problem, which some leaders are trying to solve by making living spaces smaller. This panel session will discuss “micro-apartments” as a potential solution to overcrowding, touching on the legal and safety hurdles this style of apartment presents, and how to overcome those; as well as the commercial opportunities present for designers and furniture manufacturers in a world where the rooms are getting smaller.


Future Cities: Meeting at Street Level

Chair: Richard Heap; Patricia Brown, Central London Partnership; Paula Hirst, Mazars; John Dales, Urban Movement

Cities all over the world are rethinking the way their streets are designed, largely to rectify the fact that streets have historically been designed for cars, not people; and to improve the overall sustainability and liveability of the city. Consider London, for example, which has recently set forth its plan to overhaul its streets to better favour cyclists. As more cities follow this path (and they will), what design and architectural challenges and opportunities are presented in a world where the car is no longer first priority?

Speaker Description

Here's your chance to see lighting gurus Peter Earle and Paul Nulty discuss, debate and deliberate on their favourite topics. They will touch on lighting design, light source technologies and the current state of the industry.

Green measures are all about the building envelope and renewables right? Wrong! The Green Deal leaves no domestic stone unturned. We look at its impact on the property market and the implications for the KBB sector.

Sensory design - the colours and the shapes are controlling you. How architects employ colour and materials in a calculated manner to create identity, define space and heighten an experience of a building.

Luxury retail marques have allocated phenomenal resources to flagship stores in London. We explore how opulent environments drive these brands forward.

Supremely well-informed and well-connected, BD Editor Amanda Baillieu has seen many architects go it alone. She imparts lessons learnt from the best . . . and worst start-ups.

The session, in memory of independent KBB designer Marion John, will discuss the problems and solutions of providing fully equipped kitchens or bathrooms in smaller spaces.

Art galleries are the ultimate light-sensitive environments. Xicato and Sutton-Vane dedicate themselves to making or applying LEDs to large cultural spaces around the world; find out what happens when they light up exhibitions for the public.

This session will take you to the moon and back via the South Pole. Three pioneers send in postcards from the edge, showing the extraordinary work British practices have done for equatorial Africa, Antarctica and the Moon (and Mars)

Technology, media and telecoms companies are rejecting drab and standardised office environments. Several leading workplace designers and experts explain how the 21st century office is changing for the better.

The worlds of the built environment and product design intersect in this fascinating seminar. Leading practitioners from the US and Europe show how much interior design benefits from a deep understanding of product detail.

100,000 years of analog and less than 50 years of digital. Analog was material and digital is immaterial so what will happen to our material world? How will it catch up to our digital age? How will design inform this change, and adapt to a generation of digital natives?)

Chair: Mike Phillips. Finchatton; Christopher Murray (Ridgeford) Martyn Evans (Cathedral)

Musicity; Ab Rogers

The newly-installed Editor of Property Week, Mike Phillips discusses the design imperative with a panel of up-and-coming developers. Famed for their commercial, residential and regenerative work, these developers demand a lot from the design industry.

London has been the source of the world's greatest rock and pop music; now Musicity marries the urban landscape to music as never before, before taking ambient to its logical conclusion.
