NLA presents Where Design Meets London, exploring how new design concepts and smart ideas are transforming London’s urban environment, chaired by Director Catherine Staniland.

As London becomes an increasingly 24-hour cultural city, how can new cutting edge smart technologies, lighting and infrastructure improve our interactions with the city?

Julian Maynard studied Industrial Design at the Royal College of Art and is a Fellow of the Chartered Society of Designers. He is the founder of the design practice Maynard with studios in London, Melbourne and Auckland. They are currently working with TfL, Crossrail, JLR and City of Melbourne.

Since January of this year, Orhan Ertughrul has been the driving force behind the formation of G-Smatt Europe. Working closely with the South Korean founders, G-Smatt Europe is bringing its innovative smart media glass to both the architecture and events industry. This is a product that is set to transform the digital city scape. 

Florence Lam is an Arup Fellow and leads Arup’s global lighting design practice. Her particular expertise in daylight, visual perception and holistic lighting approach play a key role in many of her projects, from museums to airports, bridges to city precincts all over the world. She has been responsible for a range of lighting projects including the London Olympic Games 2012, Tate Modern, the Millennium Bridge and many more.

Managing Director at Futurecity, Lucy Kennedy leads the London team of 20 staff in the development and delivery of culture-driven placemaking and regeneration, cultural masterplanning and world-class art commissioning. Lucy has spent over 15 years working in the art and design sector and is proud to head up an organisation with over 80% female staff.
