After dark, the buildings of the City of London reveal themselves. When illuminated from inside and outside, there is a vibrancy and warmth not seen in daylight. Join architect, Ross Logie, for this special walk that not only looks at projects by some of the world's leading architects but also investigates the impact of lighting on these buildings and on our environment.
This tour follows a similar route to our walk The City of London: Adapting to Change but with an emphasis on the challenges and opportunities of lighting. We begin with the "Eastern Cluster" of office buildings, including Lloyd's Building and The Gherkin, and end at Bloomberg's European headquarters, near Bank Station. We look at the rich history of the City see some hidden gems not revealed on our daytime tour.
The lighting of buildings is continuing to make radical transformations to the City; if you think you know how urban buildings are lit, this walk promises to change your assumptions.
