About Jonathan Speirs

Dr. Jonathan Speirs (1958-2012)

D.Sc., Dip. Arch, B.Sc (Hons), RIBA, FRIAS, PLDA, FRSA, Hon.IALD, Hon.FSLL


Jonathan Speirs was one of the world’s leading architectural lighting designers. He is widely acknowledged as not only having been a pioneer of the profession of architectural lighting design in the UK but also a considerable influence on the work of a generation of lighting designers across the world. He was originally trained and educated as an architect before moving into the field of architectural lighting where he developed both his creative and technical skills through experience whilst leaning on his formal professional training. It was Jonathan’s wish that other architects might realise the possibility to move from architecture into lighting design as he did. He recognised that so doing not only required passion and hard work but also represented a substantial financial risk by moving from a formal vocational training into a new and expanding profession.
