Glasow, Managing Principal of Auerbach Glasow, has designed and managed hundreds of lighting projects throughout North America, Asia and Europe. Formally trained in theatrical lighting design at University of California – Los Angeles, she worked for Walt Disney Enterprises early in her career, which served as her transition to architecture and the firm she has led and helped grow for the past 34 years.
As a Principal at Speirs + Major, Mark Major has worked on a wide range of award-winning projects, including the Millennium Dome, the Beijing International Airport, and the re-lighting of Saint Paul’s Cathedral. Major acted as the Lighting Design Advisor to the Olympic Delivery Authority for the London 2012 games, and in the same year was appointed to the Mayor of London’s Special Assistance team for the Outer London Fund. Most recently, he completed the “Lighting Vision” for the city of London.
Kevan Shaw’s career in lighting began more than 40 years ago, 30 of which have been at his firm, Kevan Shaw Lighting Design. Shaw’s achievements in the field of lighting design consist of more than 650 projects from around the world, across a broad range of fields. Recent notable projects include the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, the Scott Monument in Edinburgh, and the Scottish Parliament Debating Chamber – winner of the 2018 Codega Award.
A devoted advocate for the lighting design profession, Shaw has served on the IALD Membership Committee, currently serves as a member of the European Union Regulatory Affairs Working Group, and will be completing his fourth year on the IALD Board of Directors at the end of 2018.
