I’m an architect. I don’t design buildings. I design places where people feel good. I don’t start a project by sitting down in a quiet office. I sit in the busiest café in the busiest place in the city. I watch the people. Hear the stories. Smell the scents. Feel the light. I sit there and wait until an idea strikes. Until it nudges me and says, “This is how we’ll do it. Exactly like this.” I’m an architect. I don’t design buildings. I design places where people feel good. Inspiration is found wherever you look for it. Find your lighting solution at www.erco.com/inspirations

[editorial] Paul James, editor, writes: The more observant among you may have noticed that we have changed our tagline to The International Magazine for Designers with Light. We began mondo*arc some fifteen years ago with the sole editorial intention of promoting good lighting design on an international scale. The name mondo*arc, an offshoot of our sister title mondo*dr (for professional lighting and sound), was a convenient title to encompass the worldwide architectural, retail and commercial lighting markets. There was no need to include the word ‘design’ or ‘designer’ in the tagline, everyone knew where we stood. But, as the market has developed and LED has come to the fore as a disruptive technology we have increasingly seen that, for large parts of the market, ‘design’ is the last thing on anyone’s mind. Lighting may be about lux levels, watts per metre and CRI but lighting design is about so much more. It’s about creative flair, inspirational projects and exciting interactions of light. That sprinkle of magic that distinguishes a special project or product from one that is purely concerned with reaching the legislative lighting levels to be acceptable. Designers with light because, in the very best instances, light (whether artificial or natural) is used as a tool to create special spaces by many different design professionals in the built environment who have an intrinsic involvement with, and love of, light. People like Patrick Arends of Mecanoo, Joost Heremans and Nicholas Ling at Foster + Partners and Eoin Billings of Billings Jackson Design. I mention these people in particular because they will be talking at a new type of lighting conference, ‘Designers With Light Forum’, that we are organising as part of May Design Series in London this year (details from page 169). As ever, our principle of getting designers of all persuasions together to talk about light holds true and this free-to-attend event will be no exception. We want to spread the lighting love beyond the lighting industry. I hope to see you there. www.designerswithlight.com Pete Brewis, deputy editor, writes: As a poet, politician, philosopher and playwright, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was well acquainted with the power of words. Yet at the end of his life in the last days of March 1822, Frankfurt’s most famous son is said to have uttered just two: “Mehr licht!” As if in answer to this final exclamation, the good folk of Messe Frankfurt have once again obliged with the return of Light + Building. As March 2014 draws to a close, the doors of the Halls 1 to infinity will open to reveal what the world’s luminaire producers have been busy preparing for international show-and-tell time. For many years - particularly during the last heady decade of LED development - the big news was indeed ‘More light!’: more lumens per watt, better efficacy, delivered in ever smaller, more convenient units. The words used were packed with hyperbole and lofty promises, and the products presented could often struggle to live up to expectation. Thankfully, the emphasis seems to be shifting, with ‘better light’ returning to the top of the agenda. Better reliability, better controllability, better colour rendering, and a better quality of lit environment are all given increasing credence - perhaps not within the lighting design profession, where these have long been factors for consideration, but in the wider world of the client and end user. Increasingly the actual owners and occupiers of a space are learning that the real debate is much subtler than a simple demand for ‘more’. In truth, there’s a suggestion that Goethe’s purported final words may themselves not be entirely accurate. Give google a quick shake and a host of uncertain alternatives quickly tumble out. One theory is that he was misheard and actually said “Mehr nicht!” (a poetically inflected ‘no more!’ - a feeling which will be familiar to anyone who has experienced a full week of L+B stimulation), though a more plausible - and for the lighting designers out there, more pleasing - suggestion is that his last gasp was a request: “Open the second shutter so that more light may come in.” A plea for better lighting design, if ever I heard one...

eye opener Infinity Bamboo Forest, Wuxi, China This stunning light installation in the concourse of ‘Moonlit Garden’, the Chinese headquarters of Daiwa house, Japan’s foremost property developers, in Wuxi, China, was designed by Prism Design, a Shanghaibased architecture and design studio founded in 2009 by Tomohiro Katsuki. Because Daiwa House is a Japanese company, Prism wanted to use the image of a full-grown bamboo forest prominently in the space, continuing the reference to traditional Japanese design and culture. Having limited budget, time and space, Prism took a minimal approach in its design. Inspired by the concept of visual infinity they decided to create the illuminated passage using only a small amount of the total space and creating a clear focus on its enhancement. LEDs, supplied by Koizumi Lighting Technology, are positioned below acrylic pipes emitting light upwards to create a beautiful effect. This is made even more spectacular as the rest of the room is dimly lit. www.prism_design.prosite.com

BERNABÉAUTIFUL A team consisting of GMP, L35 and Ribas&Ribas has been chosen by Real Madrid Football Club to convert the mythical Santiago Bernabéu Stadium into the new architectural icon of Madrid and a worldwide sporting landmark. The remodelling will give the Santiago Bérnabeu a truly avant-garde design: a new outer skin made of metallic strips of changing curvatures and LEDs and a retractable roof will represent a radical change to its outward appearance. Although the new envelope is shaped freely, its geometry is not accidental. The curved volumes are able to reflect light in a changing way, its marked lines expressing energy and drive. While visually dominating its surroundings, the stadium volume is adapted to the program behind it, swelling or shrinking without losing unity or character.
The ventilated cladding material is designed to allow or to block sunlight through its changing pattern. The skin geometry is line-based, which allows a building process that -despite its high-tech component- is relatively simple and allows for large sections to be shop-assembled. From the structural point of view, the new roof is designed with elegance and efficiency. A compression beam rests neatly on the existing concrete columns. Supported on this outer ring, the inner ring is supported on stressed cables. The whole roof is mounted on the pitch and lifted into position. The project also includes the construction of a hotel with views of the pitch, a shopping and leisure centre, an underground car park in the Paseo de la Castellana and new public spaces in the surrounding areas.
Energy efficiency, integration with the surroundings and new technology are the principles upon which the design team based their innovative proposal. “We feel incredibly proud to have met this challenge and we are convinced that the new image of the Bernabéu will stick in people’s memories,” assures Tristán López-Chicheri, managing partner at L35. Volkwin Marg, founder and owner of GMP Arquitectos, stated: “We have had the honour of participating in the construction of 20 stadiums, but this is the most important project of our career. The design reflects the value of the legendary club that is Real Madrid”. www.gmp-architekten.com www.l35.com www.ribas-arquitectos.com
TROXY MUSIC London Art Deco theatre the Troxy was struggling to grab the attention of passers-by at night, with very little light emitting the building suggesting that the theatre was closed. The primary objective of the lighting upgrade was to bring some new life to the exterior of the building, reflecting the same energy present on the inside. During the summer of 2013 Troxy called upon Architainment Lighting for a number of external LED lighting solutions. Wanting to make the most of the original 1930s features, Architainment specified Philips Color Kinetics ColorBurst Compact, ColorBlast TRX and ColorBlast Powercore fictures which remained sympathetic to the architecture. Troxy knew prior to Architainment’s involvement that they required an all LED solution, this was due to, primarily, the durability associated with LEDs and secondly, because of the reduced running costs. (Troxy have
already been making an impressive £30,000 per year saving after replacing their internal spots to an LED alternative.) In addition to the fixtures supplied, Architainment’s Technical Services team built a custom web interface specifically for the Troxy allowing easy synchronisation between the already existing internal lighting system and the newly supplied external fixtures – allowing clients the flexibility to brand the venue with their own corporate colours and/or theme. The Troxy now stands firmly and proudly with a façade as bright as the entertainment inside. www.architainment.co.uk
GAINING MOMENTUM Barbican commissioned United Visual Artists to create a new work for the Curve, its art exhibition space, showing 13 February - 1 June. Coinciding with their tenth anniversary, UVA present Momentum, an immersive installation that combines light, sound and movement. Drawing on physics and digital technology, UVA are turning the Curve into a spatial instrument, installing a sequence of pendulum-like elements throughout the 90 metre long gallery to create an evolving composition of light and sound. The pendulums
â€“ sometimes moving in unexpected ways â€“ project shadows and planes of light across the six metre-high walls and curved floor of the space. Visitors are invited to explore the room at their own pace, and their movement through the gallery shapes their individual experience. www.uva.co.uk
OUT OF THE SMOKE
Since December 2013 GNI projects’ first permanent laser installation can be experienced in the top floor cigar bar of a 5 Star Hotel in Davos. GNI designed three ‘Laser Disks’ (manufactured by Mike Stoane Lighting), building on their trademark laser mesh concepts. The three interactive and intriguing laser sculptures appear to be no more than identically formed mirrored hoops, but they come to life during the evening, and as cigar smoke rises. The three mirror finished, slim pendant rings are suspended above tables in the smoking room, revealing their red laser lines of light after smokers are tempted to blow their smoke through the rings. Each of the three loops consists of twelve red dot lasers and 24 miniature mirrors, all mounted via specially designed ball joints to adjust and lock each component individually. The frame is machined from solid black anodised aluminium. The underside of the loops are hand polished to a mirror finish, reflecting the environment, camouflaging the form and helping the disks to discreetly hide within the atmosphere of the bar. Laser intensity pulses and ripples as the smoke density changes, with the number of visitors or amount of smoker interaction. www.gni-projects.com

POISON ARROW Located in the heart of Lausanne, the Théâtre de l’Arsenic is a lively venue for creations and encounters. As part of architectural firm Pont 12’s renovation, Sophie Guyot’s installation, Überflux, creates dashes of light underscoring its effervescence whilst decking the Arsenic’s new envelope with a light imprint of roadway signs. Like a road emerging beneath the Route de Genève to the north, her creation melts in with the walls of the new theatre building, underscoring the latter’s contours and layers of building materials, before diving back under the Tivoli hill to the south. Beyond illuminating the building, Sophie Guyot’s contribution confers a signature on the venue, a trademark identity. www.sophieguyot.ch

[snapshot] An introduction to the work of the India based lighting design firm Light Vision India. SUZLON ONE EARTH, PUNE, INDIA CLIENT: SUZLON ENERGY LIMITED (SEL) ARCHITECT: CHRISTOPHER CHARLES BEGINNERS ARCHITECT (CCBA) Suzlon Energy Limited (SEL), Asia’s largest and the world’s third largest wind turbine manufacturer received the leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Platinum Award for its corporate headquarters, developed on an area of 41,000 square meters. The facility is one of the largest green building projects in India and LVI was signed on board as the lighting designer for the project, working on the structure’s facade, landscape and its public spaces. The design philosophy for the project was to harness the play of light and shadow, while using minimalistic fixtures that blended with the structure’s architecture, becoming aesthetic features during the day and providing light at night.
PRIVATE RESIDENCE, PUNE, INDIA This 52-acre farmhouse in India was built in accordance with the philosophy of the great Sri Lankan Architect Geoffery Bawa. The architecture and the lighting design are both in sync with his idea of integrating architecture and landscape along with Bawa’s stenographic manipulation of space. The space is treated as a hideaway for the inhabitants, while emphasising the comfort and the functionality of the space and its lighting. LVI took a rustic approach with the design of this project. The lighting is nontechnical and relaxed while being functional.
KOCHI BIENNALE, KERALA, INDIA CLIENT: GOVERMENT OF KERALA ARCHITECT: VIKAS DILAWARI The Kochi-Muziris Biennale was the first biennale in India, an international exhibition of contemporary art held in Kochi, Kerala. It is also the first fully-fledged LED lighting design to be fitted in a museum in India. The client wanted something that was technologically advanced and minimalistic to match the aesthetic look and feel of the space. The luminaires used were the ones that merged into the architecture, providing optimum visual comfort, while highlighting the artwork on display. Since the location of art in a biennale is in constant flux, the lighting design utilises track-based products, so that the direction of the light can be changed as and when is needed.
HOTEL ALOFT CESSNA BUSSINESS PARK, BENGALURU, INDIA CLIENT: STARWOOD & PRESTIGE GROUP ARCHITECTURE: RSP & SEEMA SEENIVASAN Starwood and Prestige group from Bengaluru got together to build the first Starwood managed Aloft in India. The philosophy of Aloft is very clear and simple and the hotel has an atmosphere that is simple, vibrant and colourful. The lobby, which serves as the reception and waiting area during the day, transforms into a buzzing live activity space at night, accordingly RGBW luminaries were used to provide the dynamism that was required. Lighting played an important role in adding a splash of colour and patterns, created with the use of various gobos and moving heads bring the space alive. LVI created a scheme that was in sync with the intent of the interior design and the character of Aloft hotels worldwide.

This issue we talk to industrial designers Eoin Billings and Duncan Jackson of Billings Jackson Design.
COULD YOU TELL ME... … what made you become an industrial designer? E: I really wanted to be an artist when I was young… I loved drawings. I was always making things and fascinated by how things worked. My Dad (facades specialist Sean Billings) did a lot of work with the “hi-tech” architects of the time, so there were always samples around the house and great big mock-ups in the garden. I was thinking of Art college, and was working as a fitter in our family’s facade plant when a friend’s father introduced me to industrial design. It was a perfect fit. It was while studying that I met Duncan. He hired me to work one summer. D: I took a different route. I studied Civil Engineering but as I got into the course I became determined to work at a more human scale. This drew me to furniture, at first. I designed, made and sold my own furniture pieces. I met Eoin while working on a project for Herman Miller. We developed a unique way of working, rapidly developing ideas and carving out a new business area. We saw that there is a gap between building process and the manufacturing industry. I see us, now, as a specialist industrial design team bringing ID process to the built environment. We call it Applied Industrial Design. … how important lighting is to your work? D: Lighting is a large part of our product work. We’ve been developing solutions with lighting manufacturers for some twenty years and, more recently, we have been actively engaged in the huge shift to Solid State Lighting. This has brought us new opportunities, allowing us to break away from convention and really dive deeply into the subject of how light affects us, how it’s specified, where it’s applied and how it’s manufactured. This shift represents an amazing opportunity for architects and designers. We strongly believe that design is an essential component to fully realising the potential of this new digital light. E: As Duncan says, much of our time is spent designing and developing new lighting products (eg, Zumtobel Cielos LED  and Trilux Aurista ), so you could say light is pretty important to our work. We do, also, work on architectural projects in the urban realm and for major transit systems like the New York City Coordinated Street Furniture project , so we are often working with lighting designers and architects on new ideas for light schemes. We can bring a new perspective, as we can bring in the guys who are developing the latest technology… not the sales teams but the optics designers, the engineers and, new to the field, the physicists. We bridge that gap between the consultant and the maker. On a broader subject, we have gained an increasingly deep understanding of light’s impact on human health. Wellbeing has always been an important part of our work, and light is a powerful tool in improving an environment. It’s not so much a question of how important light is to our work it’s a question of how important it is to yours. … why spending time thinking about and working with light is important to you? E: It is difficult to imagine light not being important given it has such a profound effect on the way we experience environments. And the more thoughtful we are in unlocking the full potential of digital control, the more responsive our environments will become. D: As a specialist it never ceases to amaze me how diverse the industry is and how much opportunity there is for improvement. We can quickly tell whether potential clients share our approach. They
will welcome our engagement with every facet of the team, from the technical to the sales force, and it’s this dialogue that catalyses the best solutions. Lighting is the means by which architecture is articulated and the the challenge we set is to design products that enhance lighting designers and architects work, rendering their work without the luminaire being a statement in itself. It’s no simple task. The light and the shadow are the heroes, not the fitting. … about the role lighting plays in the life of a city? And through your work, how do you contribute to it? D: We consider the person at the centre of any experience in the built environment so it is natural that comfort is paramount and lighting is one of the most important drivers of creating safe, comfortable spaces. E: It can play a negative role though. Light is too often a pollutant – the light levels we endure in cities are just brutal and completely unnecessary. We need far greater consideration of how light is integrated into the built environment. And this goes for interior lights as well – a downside of digital tech is the proliferation of tiny flashing LEDs on every last appliance in your home. As far as what we contribute goes, we seek to simplify, dematerialise, refine, integrate – just make the kit go away and concentrate on the quality of the illumination. … about the best and worst illuminated places you have visited? E: Anything by James Turrell is perfect but that probably doesn’t count. I think DHA Designs did a beautiful job of lighting the Science Museum façade . It’s the precision of it – using LEDs to illuminate the stonework without bleeding onto the windows. We are interested in the extreme and what you can learn. We have recently been learning more about how NASA developed solutions to introduce circadian rhythm lighting systems into the space station. At the extremes you can learn much that can be fed back into our other developments. D: When I visited St Louis the metro has such low light levels I couldn’t work out what station I’d got to. I got completely lost, which was very unnerving. At the other extreme I recently took a Virgin flight with a new, responsive lighting strategy that changes the illumination over the course of your journey. It was very relaxing. … about the importance of shadows and the balance of darkness and light? E: James Turrell  expresses it best. Obviously contrast is important as it’s so much a feature of natural light. It’s actually incredible to me what we put up with for so long in terms of workplace lighting – a homogenous, bland, fluorescent wash that drained faces and spaces of any articulation. But with LED we have to be mindful of glare and distracting multiple shadows, making it a careful balance of performance and comfort. I think one of the most interesting potentials of OLED is its use as a proximal light source. We can use it in conjunction with LED to create more dynamic and characterful environments, with light just where you need it and – even better – artificial light that responds to both natural light levels and to your needs at different times of the day.

WHATâ€™S THE BIG IDEA? Susan Brady applies her personal brand of energy and enthusiasm to bear on mega-projects for offices, performing arts, museums, education, and healthcare. Vilma Barr finds out about Bradyâ€™s principle of thinking big.

“Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work.” Daniel Hudson Burnham (1846-1912) Lighting designer Susan Brady was not in the audience when renowned architect Daniel Burnham made his memorable observation. Its essence, has however, been the operating style she has established for her lighting design consulting firm, SBLD Studio, New York. “I really do like to be involved with large-scale projects, with their scope and complexity,” she says. Now celebrating her twentieth year in private practice, SBLD Studio (formerly Susan Brady Lighting Design) has grown to an 11-person staff. She and her team have created the lighting for numerous projects in a variety of building types around the U.S., from lawyers’ offices to airport terminal buildings. SBLD handles 50-60 projects in an average year. “My career preference from the start has been to be involved in many lighting assignments at the same time,” Brady says. To accomplish this work ethic, she and co-principal Attila Uysal have adhered to a management style that spreads project development and design responsibility among their senior staff. Her design training at Parsons School of Design earned her a BFA degree in Environmental Design with an emphasis on architectural design and history. “There was no major at that time as part of the environmental design program, although a lighting course was a requirement for graduation,”
Brady recalls. She decided to pursue her initial introduction to the field of lighting by applying to the International Association of Lighting Designers for a summer internship grant. “I was really thrilled to get it,” she recalls. “Diana Mesh, who, at that time was a lighting designer and the instructor of my lighting class at Parsons, advised me that the architectural lighting design firm, Fisher Marantz, was looking to bring a new designer on board. In less than a week, I was interviewed for the position by Richard Renfrew, formerly of Fisher Marantz. Within days, they called and told me that I had the job. I was astounded! It was the start of my involvement in this industry, and the whirlwind hasn’t stopped yet.” Brady had planned to work for a couple of years for Fisher Marantz, and then would move on to join an architectural firm, “I’d be able to offer an understanding of lighting and could better contribute to the firm’s design output. My perspective then was that I’d be able to offer workable solutions to the user’s lighting needs and be a better designer.” As she gained more experience, she also gained self-assurance that she could successfully direct her career to specialise in lighting, and eventually established Susan Brady Lighting Design in 1994 with offices in downtown Manhattan. Overall responsibility at SBLD is shared by Brady with Attila, and the pair work during concept and project planning phases. “We both subscribe to the practice of giving our staff a good deal of responsibility to run a project successfully,” Brady says. “They assume a role of ownership of the pro-
ject, from beginning to end. We check in regularly, with the project team, of course. But our management objective is to give the younger staff members the opportunity to learn how a project comes together, is developed, and is then seen through to completion. “ Designers at SBLD come from diverse backgrounds, Brady indicates. “Some have architectural or interior design training, or have previously worked for other design firms, while others bring their theatrical lighting experience to our practice.” Over the last few years, many of the firm’s designers have earned their MFA Lighting Design degrees from Parsons The New School of Design in New York. In her almost 30 years as a lighting professional, Brady has witnessed a shift in client appreciation of lighting’s contribution to their investment in the built environment. “They understand that there are technical issues and energy codes to be complied with,” she acknowledges. “Now, they also accept that a lighting plan is more than wattage limits, but that the light level has to be sufficiently bright for users to perform their tasks. In our experience, showing the clients images of similar concepts that we pull from many diverse sources to explain the techniques we are considering,” she reports. “Then, with the architect’s rendering of the spaces, we can relate the light level calculations and demonstrate the conceptual solution we propose,” she says. “It’s important that we show how the lighting scheme will respond to the proposed surface finishes and how the layering of

the light sources we suggest will contribute to the final illuminated finished space. It’s a story that unfolds as a collaborative approach between the architect and SBLD,” she recounts. Brady credits establishing a close working relationship with the design architects from a project’s outset as the springboard for her team’s conceptual lighting process. “When I started in practice, there were only two-dimensional visualisation formats available from which the architect and the lighting designer could generate and share ideas. It was an intellectual process that is far different from how we go about organising our tasks today. Rendering from a three dimensional perspective from the beginning has established an accelerated creative process for the designers and introduced a method for the client to contribute to the final product.” Now, she says, face-to-face meetings bring her team together with the architect and the interior designer to gener-
ate ideas that lay the groundwork for establishing the project’s parameters. “Then, the initial lighting program and phased timetable are communicated to the engineers to coordinate with my team on such aspects as energy use, code reviews, LEED requirements and controls,” Brady explains. Adherence to this schedule was important in keeping two recently completed major projects on track to completion: The Smith Center for the Performing Arts in Las Vegas, and the John Jay College for Criminal Justice. “Every one of the lighting fixtures for the Smith Center was custom designed and detailed by us,” Brady states. “I virtually invested my life in that project for two years. It was the largest budget we had ever worked with. Fortunately our fixture manufacturer, Creative Light Source, was headquartered in Las Vegas, and they specialise in large-scale signature fixtures. David Schwarz was the design architect and we had consulted with his firm before, so
we were familiar with each other’s working style.” The building’s overall design theme is a sleek updated version of Art Deco, which the architect described as an interpretation of the design of nearby Hoover Dam, opened in 1936. The dramatic trio of fan-topped chandeliers in the main lobby, luminous expressions of opal, textured and art glass, establish the facility’s grand scale. For the 58,000m² John Jay College for Criminal Justice in New York City, there was an eight-year gap between the initial design in 2003 and completion in 2011. Brady had to track the viability of the design as numerous fixtures that were part of SBLD’s first set of lighting specifications were discontinued or revised by the manufacturers. Metal halide and fluorescent were the primary lamp sources on the final specifications. “If we were designing this building today,” says Brady, “we would certainly be using LEDs.” Like other successful female lighting

HIGHLIGHTS Projects that you would like to change: I miss the concepts and solutions that were value engineered out of a project to save money. We originally designed the Changi Airport Terminal in Singapore to have blue accent light on the exterior wall and white lighting to highlight the intricate interior ceiling. But the layering, depth, and hierarchy of the architecture that I envisioned were all lost when the blue filters where deleted. Projects you admire: There are certainly many current projects that I admire but I find I am most inspired when I travel. It takes me out of my comfort zone, so there’s time to really absorb my surroundings. I love the European piazzas, especially in Italy and France, where they provide beautiful (and often minimal) decorative fixtures mounted to the perimeter buildings, sometimes with an illuminated fountain in the centre. It makes for such a warm and inviting experience; being wrapped in the glow of the beautiful buildings. In the U.S., we often have to provide 5FC minimum in a public plaza. It’s so unnecessary, to turn a beautiful outdoor space into something that feels more like a parking lot. I wish our local authorities had the sensitivity and restraint to understand the perception of light and brightness rather than being dictated by the metrics of horizontal footcandles only. My favourite lighting experience is Paris, with its beautiful illuminated bridges, and of course the iconic Eiffel Tower. I just love the way the structure of the Tower is illuminated and the strobe effect of the sparkle light feature is exciting to watch. The choreography of the patterns not only marks time and place, it makes people happy. It’s that sublime nature of lighting that I find so inspiring.

designers, Brady juggles personal and family responsibilities with professional priorities. Her husband is an architect and she has accompanied him on his international travels. Their son, Taner, now a high school senior planning for college, is a competitive downhill racer. “When he was young, I wanted to be with him and still develop the business,” she relates. ”With the assistance of Attilia, we built the senior staff so that I could set aside time to be home and still feel confident that things were moving smoothly at the office.” Starting with the eighth grade, Taner transferred to a boarding school in Vermont. “We drove up every weekend to see him,” she adds. Brady has memberships in both IALD and IES. As her schedule allows, she participates

in the activities of the local New York City chapters and encourages her designers to attend the professional events staged regularly at venues around the city. SBLD’s workload currently includes a new group of major, high-profile projects in the U.S. and overseas. “Regardless of the project type; sports arena or airport, hospital or law firm, my mission is to transform the space with light in a subtle but effective manner,” Brady says. “In my mind, the most successful projects are those where the lighting is not immediately noticed. Instead, the spaces are lively, animated and comfortable. They just ‘feel right’,” she concludes. www.sbldstudio.com
Projects you dislike: I generally dislike designing residential projects, and have done very few. My preference is to work directly with another design professional, as opposed to an owner who who does not understand design. Once again, my love of large-scale work comes into play here. Lighting Hero: Paul Marantz is a fantastic lighting designer who taught me so much. Not necessarily the technical aspects, but how to see the light when beginning a new project. We discussed how light could transform and enhance the space as well as how to respect the project’s architectural integrity. I also respect the work of Paul Gregory and the late Jonathan Speirs. Notable projects: The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, Las Vegas; Schermerhorn Symphony Hall and the Frist Visual Arts Center, both in Nashville; JFK Airport, New York City, Terminal 4 Expansion. Most memorable project: From 2000 to 2004, we developed a master plan for the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. We had to survey the rooms at night, and then document our observations. Unfortunately, the work was never implemented because of a reduction in the Government’s budget. It would have been very exciting to see the transformation had the design been completed. Current projects: Renovations to the Cooper Hewitt Museum, New York, and to the U.S. Tennis Association in Forest Hills, N.Y., involving a new stadium and upgrades to the grounds and facilities. Offices of the International Monetary Fund, and for numerous law firms in Washington, D.C. We are the lighting consultants for the Shanghai Tower Exhibition & Special Events Center. And, for my own firm, a new website.

PROJECT / RENZO PIANO PAVILION, KIMBELL ART MUSEUM, FORT WORTH, TEXAS, USA
Designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) and Kendall/Heaton Associates, the highly anticipated expansion of the Kimbell Art Museum opened late last year to critical acclaim. Subtly echoing Louis I. Kahn’s classic building (with lighting design by Richard Kelly) in height, scale and general layout, the RPBW building has a more open, transparent character. Light, discreet (half the footprint hidden underground), yet with its own character, setting up a dialogue between old and new. A highlight of the design is the top-lit east wing with its innovative light-controlling and power-generating roof system thanks to the work of Arup’s UK office who provided the lighting consultancy services (as well as mechanical and electrical engineering). Addressing the severe lack of space for the museum’s exhibition and education programmes, the new building provides gallery space for temporary exhibitions, classrooms and studios for the museum’s education department, a large auditorium of 299 seats, an expanded library and underground parking. The expansion roughly doubles the Museum’s gallery space. The 9,400sqm colonnaded pavilion stands as an expression of simplicity and lightness - glass, concrete and wood some 60 metres to the west of Kahn’s signature cycloid-vaulted museum of 1972. The Piano Pavilion is made up of two structures connected by two glazed passageways. The front, or east wing, opens into a glass-enclosed lobby leading to two simply expressed galleries: here, coupled wood beams run north and south, the floors are oak, and the walls are perfect, long expanses of light-grey concrete or curtain glass. The beams support an elegant roof structure of steel and glass, fitted above with louvers that control the flow of sunlight and below with scrims that filter the light before it enters the gallery. As spaces for viewing art, both galleries benefit from the presence of this natural illumination and, through their window walls, from the changing impressions of exterior weather and light. The principal function of the south gallery is to display temporary exhibitions; the north gallery, to show works from the collection. The West Wing is tucked under an accessible green roof flanked by light wells that allow daylight to spaces below. Glimpsed from the porch of the Kahn Building, the Piano Pavilion’s east wing conveys an impression of weightlessness: its recessed glass entrance is centered between crisp concrete walls that define the galleries to the north and south; a wafer-thin layer of glass hovers over the heavy steel and wood roof system; and the overhanging coupled

wood beams appear to float above the exterior walls. Approaching the Piano Pavilion, a visitor is aware of its transparency: through the glass lobby the eye moves to the walls of the west wing, sheltered beneath a green roof. Here, in the second of the two structures, unfolds the pavilion’s surprise: an auditorium with bright-red, raked seating plunges below ground to a stage, which itself is set against the backdrop of a deep and broad light well animated by shifting patterns of natural illumination, which shine through the whole structure towards the east. As always in their museum designs, Piano and Arup continues to experiment with ways to animate and direct natural light, here with a roof system that is notable for its integration of the wood beams as the support for a system of north-opening aluminum louvers and solar cells, mounted above fritted glass and stretched, silk-like scrims. “The Kahn building is famous for its natural light,” Piano said. “But that was a natural lighting system designed in the late ’60s and ’70s. Technologies have advanced considerably since then. We needed to capitalise on the new technologies and make a design that is more flexible and responsive to the issues of today, like sustainability.” Within and outside the building, they have manipulated light and provided unexpected
sightlines by dramatically slanting some of the building’s walls. Canted walls also channel light in two sets of stairwells connecting the upper and lower levels: one leading from the main entrance to the underground garage, and the other descending from the upper level to the lower auditorium entrance. Arup developed and designed bespoke systems to conserve and display the art in the most appropriate environmental conditions, whilst seeking to reduce carbon emissions. The roof system above the southeast and northeast gallery and lobby spaces was key to this. A system of motorised photovoltaic louvre elements, constructed from glass and aluminium, generate enough power to offset up to 70 per cent of the carbon emissions relating to the gallery lighting and environmental control systems. The louvres filter daylight to the galleries below and can be adjusted to control daylight levels. This highly integrated design performs three functions in a single element, controlling daylight, excluding direct sunlight and generating power. “Our collaboration with Renzo began in spring 2007, shortly after he accepted the challenge set by the Kimbell Trustees to construct the extension,” states Arfon Davies, Associate Director of Lighting at Arup. “The client brief was clear, that new

Top Even the seemingly most mundane of spaces were given the design treatment.

galleries were to be daylit, and it was immediately clear that we had a huge challenge responding to what many refer to as the pinnacle of daylight design, sitting just 200 feet away from our project. It was the presence of the Kahn building and its magical use of daylight that formed the first of three ingredients that informed our early daylight design thoughts and discussions.” The second ingredient was the large body of work they had already created together, especially the museum projects in Texas (the Menil Collection and Cy Twombly Pavilion in Houston and the Nasher Sculpture Centre in Dallas). The brief from Piano to the team was to be inspired by but not restricted by their past work: the solution for the Kimbell project was to be a new chapter and
innovation in their 25 year journey of design together. The third ingredient was the desire to generate a project that minimised carbon emissions and energy consumption. Early studies with the wider Arup design team clearly identified daylight as a key driver to achieving carbon and energy reduction targets. It was the first ingredient that was focused on initially. What was it about daylighting at the Kimbell that made it so special to so many people? Arup undertook a thorough study and assessment of daylight conditions at the Kahn to understand the quantity and distribution of daylight within the galleries. Interior illuminance levels were logged and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging was used
to capture daylight conditions at different times of the day, and under different sky conditions. It quickly became apparent that the quantity of daylight within the Kahn galleries was much lower than was expected; the presence of artificial light in the space is much more. Further study and discussion with the museum also showed that there was a preference for a mix of light, the use of both electric light and daylight at all times, something that low levels of daylight can accommodate. “The museum was keen to maintain this ability to have a mix of light on objects, with electric lighting being the primary source of light on objects,” recalls Davies. These early discussions with the museum
TRIPLE GLAZING Arup used a three-pronged approach to the control of the Pavilion’s daylighting system. The need to provide control of daylight levels required the use of a moving, adaptable element in the daylight system. Initial ideas focused on interior motorised louver elements, similar to those used in past projects at the Beyeler and Cy Twombly. This resulted in a system with three layers: 1, EXTERIOR MOTORISED PV LOUVERS This single layer combines four functions in one layer: - Keeps sunlight out of the gallery space; - Keeps sunlight off the glass surface, providing shading and reducing heat gain; - Regulation of daylight levels by adjusting rotation angle of louvers; - PV energy generation. The 2,322 extruded aluminium louvers each contains 13 PV cells. 30,186 PV cells in total and aare organised into panels, 6 louvers per panel. One panel is 5’ x 10’. Each individual panel can be individually controlled from the others, and can be organised and grouped together to provide larger
areas of dedicated control e.g. a 40’ x 40’ gallery space with different daylight conditions to the remainder of the gallery. The louvers have a number of pre-set positions: - 0 degrees, fully closed; - 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 15, 20 & 30 degrees open; - Hail mode – louvers fully rotated with PV facing skylight glass. This has a dual purpose, to protect the PV cells during hail storms (which can produce hail the size of golf balls), and primarily to protect the skylight glass below. The louvers are controlled by a custom designed web interface, which automatically position them based on timeclock events moving twice a day, once when the museum opens to a pre-set position, and once to a fully closed position once the museum is closed. The louvers are not actively controlled. They do not try and respond to changing daylight conditions based on photocell measurements. This is intentional as it was desired to keep the variability of daylight, in a similar way to what is experienced in
the Kahn building. The museum have a lookup table, which allows them on a month by month basis to select the appropriate louver open angle when the museum is open, and based on the exhibition requirements. 2, CURVED DOUBLE GLAZED SKYLIGHT GLASS Krypton-filled with PVB laminations to filter out harmful UV radiation. The glass has a low-e coating on surface 2, an acid etch on surface 3, and a simulated acid etch frit on surface 6. The etching treatments were extensively tested to provide some diffusion, whilst maintaining some view of the louvers above. 3, FABRIC SCRIM PANELS Panels span the entire 40m length of the gallery space, provide final diffusion of light. The material is a custom woven fabric material consisting of 100% Trevira CS yarn, selected to provide transparency to allow visitors to read the volume above the fabric ceiling.

Extensive testing by Arup revealed that there was not as much daylighting in the existing Kahn building as first thought, relying on a mix of natural and electric light.
also showed that there was a keen interest in exploring the potential to make the new building as ‘low carbon’ as possible. Electric lighting is a major source of carbon emissions in most museum buildings. Even with the significant potential of LED light sources, it was found that using daylight as the primary source of light within the galleries for most museum hours, with a minimum electric lighting at these times, would be a major step in reducing the carbon footprint for the new building. A low carbon strategy encourages the use of daylight over electric light, which leads to a regime where, for much of the year, the art is displayed under natural light alone, and electric light is used only in the winter and towards the end of the day when daylight

levels fall. This approach was somewhat different to the existing Kahn building, with relatively low levels of daylight and electric light used during all museum open hours. The museum were keen to maintain the ability to recreate this mix of light – their brief was “The new building should likewise seek to set a new standard in the sensitive use of natural and artificial light in a way that enhances the appreciation of both architecture and art”. At the same time the museum were keen to be as efficient and as low carbon as possible, and to create an exhibition space that can be flexible and adapt its lighting conditions based on exhibition needs. The final brief for the gallery daylight systems was:

Using LED lighting within the galleries provides significant energy savings: lighting energy consumption is estimated to be 75% less compared to the existing Kimbell galleries. In fact, the LED lighting, building and system design and photovoltaic power generation reduce the carbon emissions per sqft of the new building to approximately 50% of those from the existing Kahn Building.

But it doesn’t achieve this at the expense of great design. As Piano says: “It is the overall design, as well as the solar technology built into the roof system, that yields important energy savings. This is the way it should be: designing for energy savings is not an ‘add on,’ but, rather, the proper way to build.” www.rpbw.com www.arup.com

WHAT’S NEW BALTIMORE? The John and Frances Angelos Law Centre is a new Baltimore landmark. MCLA Architectural Lighting Design produced a design that matched the building’s progressive vision.
Behnisch Architeken and Ayers Saint Gross put sustainability at the heart of the Frances Angelos Law Centre. The design also put daylight to good use in the buildingâ€™s design.
The new, 12-storey John and Frances Angelos Law Center at the University of Baltimore, completed in April 2013, was conceived as a transformative, architectural landmark for the campus and the City of Baltimore. Behnisch Architeken, in partnership with Ayers Saint Gross, developed a concept for the site that utilised the use of form, volume and materials to express the buildingâ€™s functions. The project also made a commitment to sustainable solutions, giving primacy to daylight throughout the building. Working closely with the architects, MCLA Architectural Lighting Design understood and embraced the progressive nature of the project. When the design process began in 2008, MCLA pursued a solution that included a mix of sources including fluorescent, metal halide and LED. However with rapid advancements in LED technology and fixture design, it quickly became clear that LEDs would provide not only a more energy

Above right The atrium encloses a lobby, two coffee bars and informal meeting spaces.
efficient solution but also offered new opportunities for creative lighting design that would support and enhance the bold architecture. The buildingâ€™s architecture is shaped by three interlocking L-shaped volumes, which articulate the functions of the buildingâ€™s classrooms, offices, legal clinic, and the law library. At the heart of the building is a narrow, sky lit atrium that connects the three volumes together. In addition to linking the central program spaces, the atrium also encloses the lobby, two coffee bars and a handful of informal work and meeting
spaces. Beyond its connective value, the atrium is critical to the technical performance of the building. Daylight spills into the space from exterior and interior wall glazing, brightening the shallow floor plates to maximize daylight and visual access to daylight for interior workspaces. At the same time, it creates a transparent and communicative interior, visually linking public space, teaching space, and administrative space in an open environment. Glazed office partitions allow daylight to enter from exterior walls through the office
and into the interior corridors and shared spaces, reducing the need for artificial lighting. The glazed classroom partitions create visual continuity between the teaching spaces and the public areas, while the activity of the students and the general hubbub of the faculty acts to bring the atrium to life. Although a great asset, the abundant daylight required some visual balance. Given the higher illumination level along the perimeter, careful attention was focused on the internal areas, which do not benefit as much from the daylight. A slightly higher

illumination level and accents on vertical surfaces near the building’s core allow the interior areas to appear as bright as the perimeter areas. A bonus was that the energy efficiency, long life and minimal heat of LEDs allowed for greater creativity in the design of the luminaires. Although the owner’s ambitious goal was 100 per cent LED usage throughout the building, the lighting design ultimately incorporated LED in 95 per cent of the building’s spaces including the central lobby
atrium, terraced study spaces, 300-seat moot court room, law clinic, classrooms, 32,000sqf library and the auditorium. In consideration of the State of Maryland’s requirement for a competitive bidding process and the use of evolving LED technology on the project, MCLA developed performance-based specifications for all lighting including a custom, disc-shaped luminaire with a ceiling mount for use throughout the building. A 1,640-lumen fixture, with a colour temperature of 3,000 kelvin, provides
the intensity of a 100-watt incandescent A lamp. Seen from across the spaces, the luminaire’s acrylic plate offers an even glow; viewed straight on, the diodes are clearly visible. As a result of the combination of LED and daylighting the installed Lighting Power Density measures .76 watts per square foot, or approximately 25 per cent less than code and better than the ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 by 43 per cent. This contributes significantly to the LEED Platinum rating

the project has recently been awarded. This efficient, innovative lighting solution creates a warm, inviting evening environment for the students and the faculty as a whole. Because the school is still active after sunset, the artificial light becomes a more prominent feature. For the atrium, the building’s signature space, Behnisch Architeken collaborated with Zumtobel on a multi-panel chandelier, which forms the centrepiece of the lighting design. MCLA further refined the configuration, lumen output, orientation and mounting height for each fixture. The 334mm x 434mm acrylic panels are translucent from most viewing angles and transparent when viewed directly. Suspended by steel cables the chandeliers help to create a sense of scale without obstructing views or daylight. Descending into the atrium, the fixtures serve as impressive visual features and provide the perception of a brighter environment. To provide flexibility and minimize energy usage, a central dimming system manages the lighting. The central control integrates with an array of photosensors and occupancy sensors throughout the building. When adequate natural light is present (measured

PROJECT / TOUR EQHO, LA DÉFENSE, PARIS, FRANCE
THE DÉFENSE OF PARIS La Défense is the financial centre of Paris and sits at the western end of the Axe historique, a line of monuments that leads from the Louvre through the Arc de Triomphe to the centrepiece of the area L’Arche de la Defense. Concepto Lighting Design developed a lighting scheme for the refurbishment of the nearby Eqho Tower, ensuring the structure continued to live up to its lusty neighbours.
Left Patterns of multi-coloured reflections can be seen on the floor as the light pours into the atrium space. Above The ERCO Beamer projectors are visible casting light on the Dichroic glass, which reflects sunlight prompting coloured light to pass into the space, a fine example of the emphasis this lighting scheme puts on the importance of natural light.
Every major world city, as the times changed and commerce fully replaced conflict as the arbiter of power on the continent, needed a brash and impressive central business district, full of glass skyscrapers and architecture that spoke of power and wealth. New York never had a problem with this as business has always grown hand in hand with the city. The transformation of London’s Square Mile was made easier by the destruction wrought by Hitler’s bombs during the Second World War, the city needed to be re-made and most sites were fair game for redevelopment, as long as new structures were respectful towards the
iconic talisman of the area, St Paul’s Cathedral. In Paris the choice of site for a financial centre was some-what tougher, by a minor-miracle the city had survived the war intact and the beautiful Haussmann boulevards were hardly going to give way to the march of commerce. So the city authorities had to look outwards, towards the old city limits and La Défense, an area named after a statue marking the heroic defense of Paris during the Franco-Prussian war. Starting in the late 1950s the towers of La Défense began to rise out of farmland at the very edge of the city’s 20 arrondesments. The area really began to come into its own
during the presidency of François Mitterrand, a man who had set his mind on leaving an architectural legacy on the city to match the sweeping reorganisation of Paris seen during the reigns of Napoleon III and Louis XIV. He didn’t come anywhere close to matching their achievements, but he did leave a series of modern Parisian monuments including the Louvre Pyramid and the Opéra Bastille. One of these ‘Grands Projects’ as they were nicknamed was the Grande Arche de La Défense, a great white structure that sits in the middle of La Défense echoing the Arc de Triomphe. It was built as a monument to

humanitarian ideals, rather than to military victories like its brother on the Champs-Elysées and represents perfectly the overall feel of La Défense as a light and airy space, free of the bombast and overt patriotism of central Paris, a secular, relaxed space, with sharp modern architecture created to exude, and to make, money. In 1988, the middle years of the Mitterrand presidency, the Descartes Tower was built. Later renamed the Eqho Tower, the 130-metre high-rise echoes the architectural style of the
Grande Arche de La Défense, a simple, sleek design that, nevertheless, manages to make a grand statement. The building was fully refurbished in 2011 and this included a complete restructuring of the building’s lobby in order to allow for the entry of natural light and to open the space up visually to the bridge-type structure that supports the tower. A renewal of the building’s façades was also proposed. French architectural studio, Hubert & Roy and lighting designers Concepto studio
were approached to work on a daytime and nocturnal lighting scheme for the lobby. In addition to wide doorways out into the impressive urban environment that surrounds the structure, the lobby of the Eqho Tower has a large glass roof twelve metres above floor level. It is suffused in natural light, which changes the space as the days and seasons alter. At certain times of the year, and depending on the path of the sun, sunbeams shine into the lobby beneath the bridge, projecting onto the

walls and floor the shadowy silhouetted spans of the metal meshlike structure above. To breathe life into the space, highlighting the lobby’s size while revealing the sun and the changing seasons, a glass installation, consisting of coloured tinted dichroic glass was integrated directly into the laminated panels in the glass roof and reflective panels made of mirror-polished stainless steel were suspended vertically. Dichroic glass has the ability to colour rays of light passing through it, changing the colour
within a predefined range, in this case, from blue-green to purple, depending on the variations in the angle of incidental sunbeams. Dichroic glass also reflects sunbeams by colouring them differently from the rays being transmitted. Because of this installation the sun’s rays are projected onto the floor and the white walls of the lobby, generating spots of colour that slowly move and change tone throughout the day. Mirrored panels have also been hung vertically within the space to allow the coloured rays to
be deviated and projected onto the inner wall of the north-facing auditorium, an area that never receives any direct sunlight The chromatic density of the various panels of coloured glass used in the atrium is increased in the southern portion of the glass roof, in order to reduce the light and heat caused by the sun during the often-hot Paris summer. In the winter during the beginning and the end of the day, the sun strikes the building at an acute angle, so the space is flooded with light from the large vertical clear glass walls. Due

Left ERCO Beamer projectors have been installed above the glass roof, with the colour patterns visable in the glass. Above The bridge-like support, a major feature of the building’s architecture, is floodlit at night using Thorn Contrast LED projectors, turning the structure into a local landmark.
to these features the lobby has become a light trap offering occupants and visitors interesting, moving and changing images during the day and throughout the year. At night the entire lobby is lit by ERCO Beamer projectors equipped with various optics and 150W ceramic metal halide lamps from Thorn, which have been mounted above the glass roof on the exterior of the building, along a metal duckboard that was installed to enable easy maintenance work.
This lighting system makes it possible to use the metallic mesh like a huge stage grid, concealing the lighting fixtures from view. The beams of light shine vertically downwards, into the lobby, lighting the floor of the ground floor, as well as the openings into the basement, the stairs and the walls. The average illuminance in the lobby is 150 lux, with additional light picking out certain areas or meeting specific uses when necessary. The coloured glass panels that make up the
building’s façade play an active role in the nocturnal lighting system. The beams of light form an irregular pattern as the translucent panels take on colour while passing through the glass roof. These hues combine creating delicate pastel shades. In the centre of the lobby two vertical panels are flanked by two lines of Philips Color Kinetics iColor Accent Powercore linear fixtures.

ranging from emerald green to deep blue on the west side and to pale orange and reddishpink on the eastern side. The transparent lift shaft running up to the auditorium and the business centre is also lit by coloured LEDs. Visible from the lobby and from the wide public esplanades in the nearby Courbevoie district and in La Défense itself, the bridgelike support structure that sits below the tower is an emblematic sight. At night, the lighting reverses the daytime perception of the building, emphasising the open space created beneath the tower. This is done by using dynamic blue uplighting that accentuates the underside of the building, as well as its side
DEUTSCH Der Eqho-Tower, ein 130 Meter hohes Hochhaus in La Défense, Paris, wurde 2011 einer Sanierung unterzogen, die eine komplette Umstrukturierung seiner Eingangshalle umfasste, damit Tageslicht einfließen kann.

PROJECT / PAWTUCKET RIVER BRIDGE, RHODE ISLAND, USA
PAWTUCKET CROSSING The story of the Pawtucket River Bridge offers a cross section view of American history, from the Industrial Revolution to the Obama administration. When the bridge’s latest incarnation was constructed, Abernathy Lighting Design made sure the structure’s lighting scheme matched its biography.
Pics: Christopher Abernathy and Matthew Merola
The Art Deco features on the Pawtucket River Bridge echo the design of Pawtucket City Hall. LED Bridge Light fixtures (puck lights) from Forum and colour changing LEDs from Beghelli have been used on the span of the structure, they are able to change colour, meaning the bridge’s look can reflect the time of year.
The Pawtucket River Bridge in Rhode Island makes up a critical chunk of Interstate 95, the road that carries travellers between Boston and the Island’s most populous city, Providence. The crossing, over the Pawtucket River in the city of Pawtucket, has a long history, the very name of the area originating from the term Native American’s gave to the place where a trail crosses a river. During the 19th century the bridge became a commercial crossing when America’s burgeoning Industrial Revolution began to gain strength in the area and by the mid-twentieth century Interstate 95 had become the most travelled highway in the nation. In many ways the bridge in its different forms presents a good picture of the political history of the United States. The original bridge was built in 1958, during a time when President Eisenhower was investing
in the nation’s infrastructure. The original art deco style of the bridge was created to reflect the Pawtucket City Hall, itself built in 1933, during another public works programme, created by Franklin Roosevelt to ease the unemployed back into work in the wake of the Great Depression. On the eve of another financial crisis, the Great Recession of 2008, the 1958 bridge was declared unsafe. Construction on a replacement began in 2010 at a time when another President, Barack Obama, was once again investing in the American infrastructure, this time as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. It has been estimated by the Rhode Island Department of Transportation that 162,000 vehicles travel across the Pawtucket River Bridge every day, but the bridge is more than a crucial travel link, it has also, since
its creation, acted as an iconic talisman for the city of Pawtucket and the replacement had to echo this sentiment. From hand hewn covered bridges to steel and concrete marvels, Rhode Islanders have long expressed pride in bridges and regard them as iconic structures. The defective Route 95 overpass created an opportunity to demonstrate that State and Federal wings of government could cooperate, not always an easy task as American politics continues to polarize. Not only did the differing tiers of government have to work together, but they also had to work in concert with a design team eager to present an engaging creative vision to revitalize the city’s historic gateway. The design challenge was not to create a linkage over a relatively narrow New England waterway, but to convey the series of

extraordinary events that have for centuries converged on that very spot. The project entailed replacing three separate structures with a bridge to carry I-95 Northbound; a bridge to carry I-95 Southbound; and a bridge for the on and off ramps to George and School Streets. Inspiration for the new bridge’s Art Deco design, once again, just as it did in 1958, came from other structures in Pawtucket built during the Great Depression, such as City Hall, McCoy Stadium and Shea High School.

With a strong daytime image due to strong design, the bridge’s night time presence was created by emphasising simple lines and by elevating accents. One of the key features of the bridge is its Art Deco styled pylon sculptures. The task of lighting these was made simpler due to the use of a full mock up, set up outside Pawtucket City Hall, which allowed a detailed lighting plan to be put together, while the bridge itself was still under

FRANÇAIS Le pont de la rivière Pawtucket présente quatre piliers accueillant des représentations d’ailes de style Art déco. La nuit, ce pont en acier métallisé s’illumine de diodes électroluminescentes de couleurs, ressemblant alors à une élégante arche argentée recouvrant la rivière Pawtucket. L’entreprise Abernathy Lighting Design est à l’origine de ce concept. Le projet fut
achevé en 2013 et a coûté 80 millions de dollars. Le défi conceptuel n’était pas de créer un lien au-dessus d’un cours d’eau relativement étroit de la Nouvelle-Angleterre, mais plutôt de transmettre l’héritage d’une série d’événements extraordinaires qui pendant des siècles ont convergé à l’endroit même où se trouve le pont aujourd’hui. Le processus de conception du projet fut fortement inspiré de l’apport de la communauté. La structure finale du pont rappelle les styles architecturaux Art déco trouvés sur les devantures des bâtiments locaux et cherche à exprimer la force et la permanence par les lignes et les angles simples des écoinçons de son arche. Du temps des vieux ponts couverts et taillés à la main aux merveilleux ponts en acier et béton armé d’aujourd’hui, les habitants du Rhode Island affichent depuis longtemps leur fierté par l’entremise de leurs ponts et les considèrent toujours comme de vraies structures emblématiques.

construction. The discreet accents on the north and south arches of the bridge have been lit with four LED, four colour, programmable ‘puck’ lights, provided by Forum which add colour changing light sources to the bridge’s principle architectural features. Uplighting was provided by fixtures from Erco and Kim Lighting, while Lumenton spotlighting fixtures were used on the bridge span. At night, these pucks, in concert with the pylon sculptures and the fixtures installed on the bridge span are able to change colour, giving the structure a night time character and allowing the bridge to change colour to suit the time of year. The bridge’s lighting scheme is controlled through an ETC Mosaic Show Controller, integrated by Barbizon, which uses custom

Vom Fluss aus gesehen ähnelt die Brücke aus metallisiertem Stahl, die nachts mit bunten LED-Lichtern beleuchtet wird, einem eleganten, silbernen Bogen über dem Pawtucket-Fluss. Abernathy Lighting Design war für das Projekt verantwortlich. Das Projekt kostet 80 Millionen $ und wurde 2013 fertig gestellt. Die Herausforderung des Designs bestand nicht darin, eine Verbindung über einen relativ engen Wasserweg in Neuengland zu schaffen, sondern eine Reihe außergewöhnlicher Events zu vermitteln, die seit Jahrhunderten an dem Platz konvergieren, an dem die Brücke jetzt steht. Der Designprozess war stark auf den Gemeinschaftsbeitrag ausgerichtet. Die endgültige Struktur bezieht sich auf architektonische Art
scripting to execute programmed lighting looks. This lighting playback device is housed in a weather proof, climate controlled, cabinet and is remotely programmable from the state transportation offices. To manage issues of voltage drop over the project’s long transmission distances, the pylon sculptures serve as distributed power supply cabinets. In response to concerns over long term maintenance, all Metal Halide luminaires requiring lamp changes are easily accessible and all LED wiring connections are made at roadway level. Abernathy Lighting Design has developed a lighting scheme that not only respects Pawtucket’s history, but gives the area a landmark for the future. www.abernathylightdesign.com

PROJECT / HAKKASAN, LAS VEGAS, USA
DESERT ROSE Hakkasan Las Vegas, opened in April 2013, is the latest addition to the Hakkasan portfolio and its largest and most ambitious venture to date. Developed with partners Angel Management Group (AMG), Hakkasan Las Vegas is a bold evolution of the global restaurant brand into an allencompassing nightlife experience. Isometrix was responsible for the architectural lighting design.
PROJECT / HAKKASAN, LAS VEGAS, USA
RCL’s DR8 LED spotlights are used in the triple height ceiling of the nightclub on levels 4 and 5. The luminaires can be adjusted in pan and tilt using RCL’s patented ‘Select & Direct’ system, which uses a simple handheld controller to select individual lights and focus them from floor level.
Covering over 80,000-sq ft (7,260sqm) spread over five floors the site incorporates a large restaurant with mezzanine private dining area, an intimate after-dinner lounge bar (the Ling Ling Lounge) and the Ling Ling Club, and a two-storey main nightclub on the fourth and fifth floors. The scale and scope of the development, built within the iconic MGM Grand Hotel & Casino complex, presented an interesting challenge for Isometrix Lighting + Design, whose scheme was shortlisted for a 2014 UK Lighting Design Award. “Having worked with Hakkasan for many years on a number of restaurants all over the world, Isometrix has developed an understanding of the brand’s unique ethos and aesthetic style. However, from the outset, it was apparent to the whole team that this particular location was going to be very special, and that it would require a step up in gear,” says Isometrix lighting designer
Althea de Ste. Croix. “The scale of the project and its location in ‘larger than life’ Las Vegas demanded a careful and considered approach. A balance needed to be struck between recreating the signature intimate experience familiar to regular visitors of Hakkasan restaurants worldwide and delivering a scheme that could stand out among the bright lights and glitzy, varied attractions of Las Vegas,” she adds. Located on the first level is the main dining area, separated by latticed woodwork known as the ‘Cage’ to create intimate dining spaces that also share the atmosphere of the dining area as a whole. The restaurant has at its heart what Hakkasan describes as ‘the kitchen, a dramatic culinary theatre helmed by Michelin-starred Chef Ho Chee Boon and his team of highly skilled wok and dim sum chefs’. The lighting is an integral part of the relaxed but upscale
‘dining experience’. As the evening progresses guests move upstairs to the third level 10,000-sq foot (930sqm) Ling Ling Club and the Ling Ling Lounge, a separate, more intimate environment. On the fourth level, the main nightclub has oversized VIP booths that surround the dance floor whose DJ space has a custom DJ booth and suspended performance area, all enveloped with floor-to-ceiling LED screens. The pavilion, with its indoors oriental garden, operates either as an extension of the main nightclub or in its own right. It is equipped with its own DJ booth, the Garden Bar, an amphitheatre-style setting and a two-storey water feature with lifelike foliage. Elevated above the main nightclub is the mezzanine on the fifth level, which provides a more private, VIP environment while still giving access to the energy of the dance

Croix, “but once we were happy with one it was simple to match the effects on the rest and the effect of the multiple projectors working together was virtually seamless. The water effect coupled with the texture of the stone wall has a dynamic cascading effect.” Moving upstairs, Isometrix lit the public staircases using the wall-recessed ISL ALED floor washer from Lucifer Lighting. “To create a more theatrical feel these were gelled with a red colour filter,” says de Ste.

Der Umfang und die Tragweite des Bauprojekts, das im kultigen MGM Grand Hotel & Casino-Komplex gebaut wurde, bedeutete eine interessante Herausforderung für Isometrix Lighting + Design. Isometrix war für die architektonische Beleuchtung im gesamten Nachtclub und Restaurant verantwortlich, während die Theaterbeleuchtung durch Audiotek aus Irland konzipiert und bereitgestellt wurde.

At the bar, a bright yellow glass counter is backlit with a strong white LED tape from Luminii. In the club areas, a brief from the club management team, AMG, was to provide flexible, focused lighting over the private booths to allow guests to read drinks menus. In the Level 3 club this lighting is provided by AR111 spotlights by LSI. “However,” says de Ste. Croix, “in the Levels 4 and 5 club the immense ceiling height created a challenge. We needed a high-output spotlight that would provide a narrow beam capable of pin-spotting the tables from the almost triple-height ceiling and that could also be easily focused. In addition to this, AMG specified that each light be individually controllable to allow independent dimming control of each light when required.” The solution was provided by Remote Controlled lighting.

ITALIANO Hakkasan Las Vegas, inaugurato nell’ aprile 2013, è l’ultima aggiunta al portfolio Hakkasan ed è la sua più grande e ambiziosa impresa fino ad oggi. Sviluppato con i partner Angel Management Group (AMG), Hakkasan Las Vegas è un’audace evoluzione del brand di ristoranti a livello mondiale in un’ esperienza di vita notturna onnicomprensiva. La scala e la portata dell’ampliamento, costruito all’interno del pittoresco complesso MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, ha presentato una sfida interessante per Isometrix Lighting + Design. Isometrix si era occupato dell’illuminazione architetturale per
lighting when the bill arrives. The luminaires can be adjusted in pan and tilt using RCL’s patented ‘Select & Direct’ system, which uses a simple handheld controller to select individual lights and focus them from floor level. In addition, staff can adjust the dimming of the DR8s via DMX to create lighting zones for dining parties or group events. RCL supplied a total of 65, DR8 LED spotlights with a warm colour temperature of 2700K spread throughout the nightclub area. “We have used RCL’s luminaires before in areas that are inaccessible and they were ideal for the triple-height ceilings at Hakkasan, Las Vegas, where we needed to light individual booths,” says de Ste. Croix. “One of the advantages of the RCL equipment is that it is very quick to set up,” she adds. “Whilst fulfilling the brief, RCL’s lights also have the advantage of being incredibly easy to focus from the ground, eliminating the need for access equipment. The remote control also makes them a favourite of contractors on site. We did not struggle to find volunteers to assist in focusing them!” www.isometrix.co.uk

PROJECT / KNIGHTSBRIDGE ESTATE, BROMPTON ROAD, LONDON, ENGLAND
The newly completed exterior lighting installation for the Knightsbridge Estate is the first in a series of steps to realising the owner’s vision for the estate. Chelsfield, the real estate investment partnership, hopes the area in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London, will become one of the most prominent retail assets in London. The site is in a prime spot, the 3.5 acre estate is flanked by a number of high-end stores, including Harrods and Harvey Nichols and is not far from Kensington Palace, the official residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The total length of the lit façades is in excess of 500m, making it the largest installation of its kind in the UK and, when considered in full, provides a stunning lit panorama. The exterior lighting project originally started in the autumn of 2011 when Chelsfield appointed GIA Equation to produce a façade lighting concept that would create a new and unique character for the area. The Knightsbridge Estate building complex is a puzzle of different building styles and periods, each hosting retail activities on the ground floor, which are in themselves characterized by a considerable variety of styles. There are a variety of stone sizes and shapes on the façade itself, as well as a cloud of light spill from the windows and branding labels across the site. Overall a consistency and visual continuity of lighting was painfully absent. The new illuminated façades required a character of their own, proclaiming the eye-catching nature of the property and its distinct identity, in comparison to the equally strong images of Harvey Nichols, Harrods and the nearby Mandarin Oriental. To achieve this a lighting design was required that was quite distinct from any other exterior lighting scheme, at least in the vicinity of the site. Elegance was certainly a watchword during the development of the scheme. Kensington and Chelsea is a particularly elegant area of the city and elegance is socially linked with minimalism and sophistication. Higher end retail spaces tend to follow more minimal lines and in order to achieve an elegant result on the building façade, a composition of white light tones was proposed for the project, as well as a simple sophisticated visual language that complimented the surface finishes and colours. For example it was required that a white light range was focused onto the stone façades, while golden whites were used on brick surfaces. The early brief was to provide a lighting
A great deal of effort was put into ensuring that the intricate detail found on the façade’s 19th centaury cornices and octagonal columns were correctly lit. Discreet fixtures were used and painted in a colour that matched the wall finishes. A mixture of acdc, iGuzzini and Philips Color Kinetics products were used to light the façade.
PROJECT / KNIGHTSBRIDGE ESTATE, BROMPTON ROAD, LONDON, ENGLAND
Dynamic white LED luminaires have been used throughout the lighting scheme, offering a varying colour temperature, the light can be adjusted to suit the differing materials used on the building’s façade, be it white stone or red brick.

The lighting was to be of the highest quality, not just from the design aspect, but also in the case of the lighting equipment and installation in order to ensure longevity and ease of maintenance. The complexity of the predominantly early 19th century façades, of which three are Grade II listed buildings, commanded the use of discreet, specially finished custom made luminaires, that were unobtrusive in daylight conditions.

PROJECT / 2-22, MONTREAL, CANADA
STREET THEATRE Multimedia studio Moment Factory used LED panels as architectural lighting in their treatment for the façade of Montreal’s new downtown culture hub, 2-22.
The corner of St-Catherine and St-Laurent in Montreal is an area in reform. Once an address synonymous with peep shows and dive bars, this iconic address is now at the heart of a municipal project to create an upscale arts district for the city. The new 2-22 building is in many ways the cornerstone of the Quartier des Spectactles project. Sitting at this crossroads location, it provides a home to a number of cultural organisations, including community radio station CIBL, cultural information service La Vitrine, documentation centre Artexte, Le Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogeres du Quebec, and visual arts centre VOX. Collectively, these groups - all co-owners of the building - make 2-22 a hive of creativity. The five-storey structure is the brainchild of the Société de Développement Angus and architects Aedifica and Gilles Huot. Its façade comprises a double skin: a wooden facia covered by an outer glass layer, between which run a series of communal walkways. At street level a diagonal section cuts through the very corner of the building to create the main entrance, the façade pulling back like opening theatre curtains to
reveal the activity within the foyer. The building is designed to have the versatility to accommodate what city planners hope will prove a rich variety of cultural programming over the years to come. To emphasise this role as cultural and creative hub, La Vitrine culturelle turned to Montreal-based multimedia designers Moment Factory to bring the exterior space to life. Moment Factory had already worked with the client on a number of previous projects. For La Vitrine Culturelle’s previous home at the Place-des-Arts, the team created an award-winning interactive LED façade, and within the foyer of 2-22, they had already created a six metre tall interactive sculpture with ribbons of LED screens that present the latest offerings from La Vitrine culturelle in an informative yet artistic installation. Because of this relationship, the team were brought in at the very start of the project and continued to meet with the client and architects regularly in order to exchange ideas as the plans evolved. As Moment Factory’s Gabriel Pontbriand explains, this was key to the success of the design. “Often on these kinds of projects we’re
2-22 sits on at the junction of St-Catherine and St-Laurent in the heart of Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles.

brought in at the end of the process, so the application of the multimedia is quite minimal,” he says. “Here the building hadn’t started construction, so early on we were able to recommend details to help us better integrate our features.” This closer cooperation helped Moment Factory ensure their scheme would work with the ‘gestures’ of the architecture, rather than providing an extra, unrelated layer on top of the structure. For example, Pontbriand and his colleagues emphasised the diagonal opening at the building’s entrance by integrating grazing fixtures at its edge. As a consequence the structure was adapted to accommodate approximately 100ft of
PROJECT / 2-22, MONTREAL, CANADA
Moment Factory designed lighting effects for four aspects of the façade of 2-22. 1 DMX-controllable numerals spell out the building’s iconic address. 2 Approximately 100ft of custom grazing fixtures emphasise the opening into the foyer space.
3 RGB LED panels line the underside of the walkways that sit between the glass outer wall and the building’s inner facade. 4 In the final installation, linear lighting is used to accentuate the top edge of the building, though plans are in place to extend this around the perimeter of both façades.
narrow beam fixtures, used to throw light across the length of each façade. The shape of the building is further emphasised by a 190ft contour of RGBW linear fixtures running along the top edge of the building, controllable at inch-long intervals. There are plans in place to extend this around the edge of both street-facing façades at some point in the future. Key to Moment Factory’s design was a series of LED screens installed on the underside of the six walkways that sit between the glass and wood façades. Each screen matches the area of the walkway precisely to create six 2ft-wide sections, in lengths of between 50ft and 140ft. To work within their budget, the team selected an older RGB LED technology with an 18mm resolution (rather than a more modern SMD, where all pixels are within a single capsule), as pixel resolution was considered secondary to achieving a complete coverage of the walkway areas. Indeed, rather than considering this a restriction, Moment Factory created content that would work to optimise the effects achievable with the installed technology. For the majority of the day, the panels display a scrolling ‘ticker-tape’ of forthcoming attractions and shows - an external expression of the tickets available from La Vitrine Culturelle and an extension of the scrolling sculpture already installed in the building’s foyer, visible from the street though the tall entranceway windows. Though displaying information-rich content, it was essential to the designers that this be done subtly. “We were very careful not to create another Times Square,” says Pontbriand. “The people of Montreal pass by this building every day, so we developed content that was more minimalist, more timeless, less dynamic - more like a digital art piece - so that people don’t find it annoying and don’t get tired of seeing it.” As a consequence of this approach, the scrolling text feels quite unlike an advertising hoarding and more like a dynamic piece of graphic design.
PROJECT / 2-22, MONTREAL, CANADA
When not displaying news of forthcoming events, the screens are programmed to generate a variety of unusual effects. “Early in the process we realised that the LED screens could also be used as an architectural light source,” says Pontbriand. “We did renders to see how the wood façade would be affected by the LED and it became clear it was something we could really work with.” These architectural lighting effects were factored in when Moment Factory carried out the programming for the exterior scheme, blending them with the building’s curtain grazing and contour lighting. Into this mix was added a third LED screen effect. By producing a single line of light,

The Conical Media Wall at Hysan Place, Causeway Bay - Hong Kong Hysan Place is the new flagship development by Hysan, Causeway Bay’s most significant developer of high-end retail and office properties. Given the considerable competition in this entertainment and shopping hub, Hysan Place needed something unique for its grand entrance. This led to the genesis of the Conical Media Wall; a vast electronic integrated façade which forms the arch under which most visitors will pass. The shape was immediately problematic as the overhanging façade is formed in the contour of a truncated and inverted cone 15 metres high and 24 metres wide. This created a three dimensional puzzle that no conventional modular media wall product could match. Illumination Physics solved the problem with one of its linear media wall products IP X-Pipe. This is a linear tubular LED product that is vertically mounted in separate rows. The distance along the vertical pitch of the LED was fixed at 40mm. The distance between the horizontal rows varies imperceptibly from 80mm to 110mm in order to best suit the conical dimensions. Another example of ‘Built-In Design’ from Illumination Physics.

PROJECT / MONDEAL SQUARE, AHMEDABAD, GUJARAT STATE, INDIA
A LIGHT IN THE EAST Ahmedabad, a textile town, is a city on the grow and the new Mondeal Square is a signifier of the area’s burgeoning boom. Boasting the biggest media façade in India, Atelierdada brought the building to life in light.

PROJECT / MONDEAL SQUARE, AHMEDABAD, GUJARAT STATE, INDIA
The LED media façade that features prominently on the exterior of the Mondeal Square structure was developed for the project by AHL. A specially designed irregular grid was conceived especially for the project.
The Mondeal Square project is a shining example of the increasingly buoyant nature of India’s new economy. The project has been marketed as the new commercial centrepiece of Ahmedabad, the fifth largest city in India and one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Located in the Gujarat area of the country, the city was at one point nicknamed the ‘Manchester of the East’ due to Ahmedabad’s bourgeoning textile industry. A hotspot of civil disobedience during the fight to end the British Raj, Ahmedabad has always sat right at the heart of the Indian story. The Mondeal project is comprised of a twin tower of ten and twelve storey office buildings with a connecting two storey retail area. The impressive visual display is comprised of an architectural blueprint by Blocher&Blocher and an innovative lighting
and video content design from Atelierdada. Boasting the biggest media façade in India, the structure’s lighting design is quite something to behold and features an impressive 3968 media LED lines that cover around 5293m2 of the glazed façade, Products from the media façade and media architecture specialists AHL Lighting were used on the project, with many products being especially customized for the Mondeal project, such as a new version of the D32 from AHL, which was developed for integration into the structure. What makes Mondeal Square unique and interesting is the use of a smart architectural language. The design opts to use light as an architectural element, a defining medium, and this is a tangible part of the design. The integration of the lighting into the sun shade structure has been done so that occupants have unobstructed views even while
the lights are on. The impressive grid based orthogonal media façade provided by AHL, which forms the most eye-catching element of the building’s lighting design, required the creation of a special irregular grid, as well as the development of a challenging video content program and design. The theme of the lighting programme, which produces a five hour daily light show, was developed in order to summon a sober weekday feel. The was created with the use of gently moving geometric light content, in a warm white colour that respects the nature of the building’s function and the original nature of its structure. A program plays periodically for five minutes at the start of each hour, displaying a different animation each time, turning the building’s exterior into a huge timepiece, an abstract light marker of the changing hour

that connects people with the building via a visual temporality. Beckoning in the start of a new working week, on a Sunday evening, a more agile and colourful play of shadow and light has been designed. For festivals, special abstract animations take inspiration from the local culture and Gujarat is an area rich in history and ritual from which to draw ideas. Event videos play to mark Christmas and Uttarayan – The
and Navratri, a nine day festival of dance in honour of the Hindu deity Durga. A pattern of glowing linear light can be found throughout the lighting scheme for the buildings and the square. A continuous line of light wraps the whole building, while continuous lines wrap the grand steps toward the retail area. The benches and planters in the social spaces are also natily illuminated, while radial lines drive onwards toward the corporate
International Kite Festival, one of the biggest events in the Gujarat calendar and an event that see’s locals construct a host of homemade kites to celebrate the day when winter starts to turn to summer. Light animations have also been created to mark Republic Day (one of three national holidays in the Indian calendar), Diwali, Holi (a Muslim festival of colours that sees people running about the streets pelting each other with brightly coloured powder)

entrance to the building. To express and highlight the architectural decision to merge the architecture with the public street, without an obvious border or boundary, it was proposed to use palm tree mounted lights in order to create a welcoming green natural border, while avoiding the use of any extra lighting furniture that could obstruct views of retail space, or the impressive architecture. Palm trees were symbolically planted around the public green space to compliment the architecture further. The palm tree was chosen as an icon representative
of a prosperous Ahmedabad and the history and character of Ahmedabad city in the 16th century, the area’s golden age. Mondeal Square, with its vibrant architecture, lends Ahmedabad, the one-time ‘city of adhoc billboards’, a breath of colourful art that celebrates the stirring architecture it is presented upon. This new structure in the heart of the ‘Manchester of the East’ is a symbolic sign that the city, after a rich history, will sit at the forefront of India’s 21st century story, just as it has in years past. www.atelierdada.com

PROJECT / BLACKTIP REEF EXHIBIT, BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, USA
Photographs: Cambridge Seven Associates, Inc / Kwesi Budu-Arthur
BEAUTIFUL BRINY SEA The National Aquarium in Baltimore is an Aladdin’s cave for fish fanatics, with hundreds of species dwelling deep within the museum’s many habitats. The Blacktip Exhibit with its thrilling sharks and rays has been boosting visitor numbers three-fold since it opened in 2013. Flux Studio produced an enthralling lighting design for the exhibit.
The exhibit entry features a reflective acrylic art piece overhead that refracts water-like light patterns on surrounding surfaces. The blue Lumenpulse Lumenfacade LED fixtures that graze the wall surfaces fade in intensity, introducing visitors to the dynamic lighting conditions featured throughout the exhibit.
The National Aquarium in Baltimore is a gargantuan love letter to the seven seas. With a living collection of over 17,000 animals, together numbering 750 species of fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals, the site is a glass cathedral to all things aquatic. The building of the aquarium in 1981 was a vital part of Baltimoreâ€™s urban renewal plan and the institution has since proved continuously popular with an annual attendance of over 1.5 million. The animas all reside in carefully constructed habitats, which are naturalistic to the core. In the summer of 2013 the Aquarium opened Blacktip Reef, an impressive exhibit that replicates an India-Pacific reef in all its unfathomable complexities. The replica reef features more than 700 animals, including the real crowd puller of this aquatic muster, twenty blacktip reef sharks. In 2011 Flux Studio was approached by Cambridge Seven Associates to join the design team handling the creation of the Blacktip Reef exhibit at the National Aquarium. From the outset, it was clear that this was a project that would call for delicate handling. Artistry was required to create a memorable and enjoyable setting, but equally, a high level of technical precision was needed to meet the scientific demands of the project, ensuring the optimum relationship between light and water for the best viewing experience throughout the five-storey space. The differing requirements of numerous species of animal had to be taken into account too when developing a lighting plan, including the needs of numerous rays, sharks and countless other marine species, each with their own biological requirements in relation to light.
PROJECT / BLACKTIP REEF EXHIBIT, BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, USA
“We performed a walk through and an assessment of the space and it was clear to us that the area as it stood lacked a hierarchy of focus,” comments Glenn Shrum, Flux Studio’s project head. “This was creating a rather bland environment, and one where the richness of detail in the upgraded tank habitat would be hard to make out.” In response to these complicated requirements, numerous steps were taken during the development of the lighting design. “Non-featured surfaces were illuminated to similar levels as exhibitions,” comments Shrum, “and by using High Dynamic Range photography to analyse the existing luminance levels, we were able to clearly show this to the clients as a visual map, and also to show them what focusing light on the displays and reducing it in other areas could achieve.” Improving the quality of the light in terms of colour and consistency was also considered, as well as creating easy access to lighting in order to allow maintenance work to be completed without unnecessary problems. To create a dramatic visual effect both above and under the water surface Flux Studio set out to increase the apparent brightness of displays, while counter balancing this with a dimmer saturated blue light in the non-display areas. As visitors move throughout the space, the interaction of light and water is called to mind by the use of reflective and refractive materials such as acrylic and mirrors combined with dynamic lighting. The resulting ripples, patterns and shifting views create the feeling of being immersed in a magical underwater world. At the entrance to the space a reflective acrylic art piece refracts watery patterns onto the wall, while blue light gracefully rises and falls in intensity, grazing the wall surfaces, setting the scene for what is to come. An eye-catching feature has also been created in the entrance by focusing

design file COEN HOOGSTRATEN Coens, a light and design studio based in the Netherlands, produces projects that highlight the magic in our everyday existence. Coen Hoogstraten is a light artist who values the interaction of people with his art and he often gives those who choose to interact with his work a little piece of knowledge or a self crafted trinket. He is perhaps best known for the Lichtbloem, a light flower, a do it yourself light project. Originally developed by Hoogstraten as a workshop exercise for school children, and for use as an activity at festivals, the Lichtbloem is a do-it-yourself piece of light art, constructed out of simple everyday materials, such as a clothes peg, a ping pong ball, a push pin, a battery, some optical fibres and an LED. The final result, once constructed, is a beautiful object,
a little ornament that resembles fireflies hovering around a miniature sun or a little universe orbiting about a star, all atop a clothes peg. Out of the commonplace something magical and mysterious is born. The instructions for construction of the Lichtbloem were broken down into a simple step by step guide and a box produced containing the necessary items allowing Hoogstraten to translate the DIY workshop into a beautifully presented DIY kit. The boxes have been internationally distributed and Coenâ€™s clients include the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Guggenheim in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
Hoogstraten has been working on both light objects and installations since 2009 and has presented his lighting designs at events such as Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven and Maison et Objet in Paris, as well as at other leading design shows around the world. After finding success with his original lighting designs, he founded Coens, his own light and design studio based in The Hague in the Netherlands. Public artworks have been a focus of Coens and one such project was Lightberg, a fascinating light sculpture made out of recycled industrial fluid tanks, melted to resemble an abstract iceberg. The tanks glow a distinct aqua blue, a colour that has

been designed to bring to mind the blue colouring of a glacier, a natural occurrence that takes places when snow falls on a glacier, due to the compression caused when air bubbles are squeezed, making the ice not only clear but able to absorb the red end of the colour spectrum, leaving the blue end reflected and visible. Hoogstraten values the effect that technology can have on his artwork and the innovation and inspiration its use can prompt in his art. The artist likes to highlight the often hidden technological aspects that power a canny product and then place them front row centre in his work. With Etree, a piece of light sculpture, recreated leaves are lit up in a beautiful turquoise hue. Coens first presented these lighting leaves
in real trees, and then later translated this exterior artwork into an interior object. The result is a cropped version of the tree, the base, branches and leaves representing its key elements, but critically the wires that power the leaves are strengthened into bendable branches, changing the appearance of the lamp, but also acting to recreate the purpose of the stem in nature perfectly, to give the plant life, or in the case of Etree, to feed the leaves with electricity. Nature has consistently been an area of inspiration for Hoogstraten and Marram, another piece from Coens, is a case in point. The piece was created for the Into the Great Wide Open festival that takes place in Vlieland, a small, windswept island off the coast of the Netherlands. Hoogstraten was commissioned to create a
light installation inspired by the beautiful nature of the island. Coen found a perfect spot for his artwork, just outside a forest at the top of a dune. Inspired by the sight of the wind hitting hard against the sea-side marram grass, he created optic grass that was only visible at night, tufts of shimmering light that bring to mind the magical ‘spangled starlight sheen’ from a Midsummer Night’s Dream. From the charming Lichtbloem to the wonder of Marram, Coen Hoogstraten finds and articulates through his light art work, the magic that is to be found in our everyday existence, highlighting, in the process, the inspiration that can be taken from simplicity. www.coens.org
ART & DESIGN / PROFILE
design file RUTH MCDERMOTT AND BEN BAXTER Primarily concerned with the relationship between nature and the city, McDermott and Baxter are continually inspired by the mysteries of natural phenomena. After four years of collaboration, their creative partnership continues apace.
Above right: Cloud of Bats was part of VIVID IN 2009 recreating the swirling clouds Fruit Bats create when they swarm across the Sydney sky. Above left: Wagner Licht creates a sound-scape while enveloping the viewer in light, condensing Richard Wagner’s epic Ring Cycle into three minutes.
Light, materials and the forces of nature form the basis for the craft of Ruth McDermott and Ben Baxter. The artistic double act have been collaborating for four years and combine a fine arts approach with a strong knowledge and a love of lighting. They also bring an industrial designer’s eye for detail to projects, with the intent of creating something utterly unique. They have a history of creating large scale works and have featured in the past four VIVID lighting festivals in Sydney. They have also exhibited at the recent Wellington LUX light art festival and are included in the forthcoming Thames and Hudson publication on light art. Their projects have been many and varied. One of their most recent noteworthy pieces was ‘Moths to a Flame’, which was created for VIVID Sydney 2013 festival and was installed at the city’s Walsh Bay Precinct. ‘Moths to a Flame’ is based on memories of
long Australian summers and the texture of swarming moths congregating around porch lights and streetlights. In Sydney the yearly Bogong Moth migration makes these swarms a regular feature of city life. The moths migrate from the flat plains of New South Wales and Queensland to the mountains every spring, but on the way they become distracted and hypnotised by the bright lights of Sydney and Canberra, descending on the city in swarms, creating shimmery clouds around streetlights. Thoroughly inspired by the yearly biblical plague McDermott and Baxter created a series of lightweight moth sculptures using gold plated metal moths mounted on netting. They then rigged them onto existing external streetlights in the Walsh Bay area. The aim was to enhance the lighting effect from the light fixtures, while create aerial sculptures which move with the breeze. The gold plated moths create a golden glow
around each light. Created for VIVID Sydney 2012, Cumulus was installed on Mill Lane, the Rocks, Sydney. Looking like a net of balloons suspended over a political convention, ready to be dropped at a moment of celebration, the Cumulus was inspired by the weather, particularly the unsettled storms and rain that have appeared to be more common in Australia lately. Cumulus was made from perforated aluminum sheets interlocked with specially made brackets. Internally installed LEDs were programmed to produce colours and effects that reflect the theme of the piece. Light source LMX Nodes were supplied by Xenian. McDermott and Baxter worked diligently with engineers and riggers to create a specially made mounting array and the hard work paid off, as the Cumulus went on to win an award at the IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) NSW State awards in 2012.
Left Cumulus was an attempt to create a cloud that celebrated all the different hues of light created during a single day. Top right Moths to a Flame recreates the image of moths congregating around outside lights during the summer. Above right Cascade was inspired by the many reservoirs that were built as Sydney expanded.
Pre-dating the natural theme that would go onto inspire ‘Moths to a Flame’, ‘Cloud of Bats’ was created for VIVID 2010 in Sydney and was installed on Observatory Hill, The Rocks. McDermott and Baxter collaborated on the project with the architect Trent Middleton. ‘A Cloud of Bats’, was created initially for the first VIVID light festival in 2009 and the installation aimed to evoked memories of the nightly bat migration that has existed in areas of Australia for thousands of years. The sandstone used in the piece was chose to remind those who saw it of the amazing natural landscape on which Sydney exists. The 18 meter long installation used netting to support the bat cloud as it flew up to Observatory Hill to feed on the fig trees that can be found there. The artists opted to use the colours of sunset to wash across the magnificent sandstone wall to act as a fitting backdrop for these creatures of the
night as they bid farewell the day. Philips Color Kinetic Color Blasts supplied by Xenian, were used to light the piece. McDermott and Baxter created ‘Web of Light’ for the VIVID festival of 2011. Again held in Sydney, the artwork was located on Cambridge St, the Rocks, it was also later displayed at Globelight Melbourne in 2013 and ArtLIGHT 2013. The inspiration behind the Web was the brilliant refractive effect that light has when it hits a spiders web. The artists created a three metre wide giant web using 1,000 chandelier crystals. This was then lit using energy efficient LED arrays from beneath. The light source used was the x ewGraze Powercore module supplied by Xenian. McDermott and Baxter were also trying to relate to the space, which has a particularly romantic and moody atmosphere, with some natural vegetation and textural walls. Later that year McDermott and Baxter re-imag-
ined the Web for daytime. ‘Cascade’, created in June 2012 and installed by a Sydney reservoir was inspired by the original purpose of the lake, which was to store water for the rapidly growing city of Sydney. ‘Cascade’ creates the feeling of being immersed in water, the piece acting to form a gentle waterfall. This was a very low budget project so simplicity was important. During the day the afternoon sun slants through the reservoir gardens forming a pool of brilliant blue on the lower surface. So the viewer standing in this pool and looking up at the ‘Cascade’ feels the water. The installation was lit at night with LEDs which were powered by an adjacent solar panel, another beautiful example of our atmosphere and light corresponding. www.mcdermottbaxter.com

SUB CLUB A design collective consisting of members of BDP, Arup, WSP, acdc, Cundall Light4 and SLL created a spectacular lighting and sound event at one of Manchester’s most celebrated architectural gems. There will hopefully be more to come... One of Manchester’s most famous sons, John Rylands, was an entrepreneur and philanthropist who made his fortune during the Industrial Revolution, becoming Manchester’s first multi-millionaire as a result. The John Rylands Library was opened in 1900 in his memory, a decade after his death, by his wife. The late Victorian, neo-gothic architecture of the library created the ultimate interactive theatre for the first Subluminal event. A design collective comprising light, sound and electrical designers, the Subluminal team aspire to set new boundaries of collaborative design and create beautiful, transient installations. The Subluminal team consists of Chris Lowe (lighting designer), Rhiannon West (lighting designer), Helen Varley (acoustic designer), Joe Lally (environmental engineer) of BDP; Luke Artingstall (lighting designer) of Cundall Light4; Simon Jackson (acoustic designer) of Arup; Stephen Peters (electrical engineer) of WSP Group; Eliot Horsman, who was with acdc at the time of the event; and Brendan Keely of the Society of Light & Lighting. The event, sponsored by acdc lighting, attracted members of the design industry and public whilst drawing attention to the value of the sensory narrative within the built environment through the medium of light
and sound. Subliminal brought a new level of appreciation by granting the audience access to the library where light and sound came together to create spectacle. During hours of daylight, hundreds of visitors walk through the library daily and are wowed by the majestic architecture. Over three consecutive nights, the Subluminal team demonstrated how light and sound can shape and enhance an environment that is established and celebrated. The lighting design introduced the attendees to architectural elements that are unique to John Rylands Library, and brought to life a space that could be appreciated in a way never seen before. Elements of sound intrigued and inspired emotions by immersing visitors in a vivid and memorable sensory experience. Starting the Subluminal experience, guests entered through the historic entrance of the library where a warm light highlighted the vaulted structure, contrasted with areas of complete darkness creating an eerie atmosphere. Leading up the wide staircase and towards the upper level reading room, a bellowing voice read quotations of light and shadow from literature that were projected onto a 58 foot high wall. The upper level Main Reading Room was
flooded with a saturated red light. Contrasting light and shade filled the ceiling picking out the smallest of details whilst highlighting the gothic arches overhead. Lower down, single beams of light illuminated historical books and enticed those present to move toward them as the speech emanated from hidden directional speakers. A statue of John Rylands illuminated with a cool white beam of light greeted the audience and explained the history of the building. From here, the audience was invited to enter the basement (getting there was not for the faint hearted!) via a tight spiral staircase dimly lit with LEDs led the way. As the staircase descends each step grows smaller. A deep bass rumble emanated from below the building which became more apparent during the descent. A sub-bass soundtrack accompanied guests through the low basement corridor lined with ancient books and the occasional strobe flash to light the way. During the subterranean experience the element of sub-bass vibrations took over from audible sound to reach a climax before the exit and return to ground level. With close to 800 people visiting this event, the Subluminal team plans to resurface in the future to create a whole new experience.

LIGHTING LANDMARX The Social Light Movement has reached the milestone of 1,000 members and it’s still rising on a daily basis. It is fitting that the movement has reached this landmark on the eve of Light + Building as it was there that the movement was created four years ago. Since the founders came together and decided there was a need for the group at Light and Building in 2010, the SLM has given numerous lectures around the world and held two major international workshops in Belgium and Sweden. It has just seen the ﬁrst permanent SLM lighting scheme installed as a result of the Swedish workshop. It has cracked America and has just completed its ﬁrst US workshop. It narrowly missed out
winning a Professional Lighting Design Recognition Award in the Award at Large Category at PLDC last year. It has also inspired a couple of PHDs and spread a lot of love. Founders Isabelle Corten, Erik Olsson, Joran Linder, Elettra Bordonaro, Martin Lupton and Sharon Stammers believe that as designers, we need to put ‘People before places’ and that ‘Light is a right, not a privilege’. The main objec-
tive of the SLM is for us to get out of our ofﬁces and into the spaces that we are designing for. To put down our laptops and speak to the people that we seek to provide light for. Check out our philosophy, the workshop format and results on our website and join the network on Facebook. www.sociallightmovement.com
What is the SLM? The Social Light Movement is a philanthropic movement and has been founded in order to create a network for lighting designers and other interested parties to collaborate on the issue of improving lighting for people: particularly those who are unlikely to have access to good quality illumination within their environment. The SLM exists: • To demonstrate and to design well lit environments for social and underprivileged housing areas and people. • To involve the community in the actual design of their own environment. • To encourage other designers to work in similar environments and use similar methodologies to educate
housing associations, housing management teams and social housing ownership bodies about the beneﬁts of good lighting. To gain the support of city administrations, urban planners, architects, landscape designers, electrical engineers, lighting designers and other associated
disciplines. • To create attention, arouse public opinion, inﬂuence politicians and decision makers. • To promote responsible energy use within lighting design. • To persuade people that they have the right to expect good lighting. • To never use sodium.
Hjulsta is a suburb with a housing stock made for around 3,000 people. Today there are about Hjulsta, Sweden 6,500 people living there, so overcrowding is a major problem. Immigrants and refugees make up “We don´t want any special treatment, we the demographic. Children and young people are just want to be treated like all other areas.” therefore forced to use the outdoor environment as Bahere Sadeghi, aged 19 a kind of extended living room and because there is no place for youth it often leads to ﬁghts and vandalism in the area. Working with lighting in a city centre is never questioned so the SLM aims to draw attention to the neighbourhoods that are in the periphery; physically, socially and economically. The Hjustla workshop contacted local community groups, schools, housing associations, local council and street lighting departments to ensure they understood the intentions of the SLM and then under guidance, the participants were asked to create a concept for the chosen locations. They spent time developing their ideas, undertook mock-ups, liaised with local residents and ﬁnally presented their proposals to the relevant interested groups and to the residents themselves. Along the way the workshop participants spent time talking, dancing and playing football with kids and teenagers in the area to understand how their lives are shaped by the place they live in. Olsson and Linder have implemented the ﬁrst permanent design based upon an idea from the Hjulsta workshop by students. The Forest is located in the middle of a residential estate and the students design was to add colour and vibrancy to an essentially no-go area. Brightly coloured tree stumps for seating, illuminated bird feeders in the woods, coloured lights washing across the pathway on the ground and coloured trees. The solution was achieved using a catenary system to suspend lighting and negating the huge cost of burying ﬁxtures and cables in the ground. In order to engage the community and advertise the scheme, an unusual opening event was held.
Providence, USA “I saw the build up of huge interest, enthusiasm and connection people felt for the cemetery, the neighbourhood and each other. You brought Providence a wonderful gift and a vision of what is possible.” Polly Elettra Bordonaro has headed up the ﬁrst SLM workshop in the US at the Rhode Island School of Design. The ‘wintersession’ was a ﬁve week program on public engagement and light, titled Light, City and Community. The school identiﬁed an organisation called SWAP (Stop Wasting Abandoned Properties) and Grace Church, the owners of a historical cemetery in South Providence that was in need of much love and attention. Despite being the only green space in the area, it was perceived as a dangerous and unattractive area. Fourteen international students from
the RISD’s Industrial Design, Furniture Design and Architecture departments engaged with neighbourhood businesses and residents to ﬁnd out what ideas and concerns about the cemetery existed. The class then worked in teams to create several ideas for installations, distilling their work into one ﬁnal concept Southlight that was presented to all interested stakeholders. The class then had a race against time to secure donated luminaires, test the ideas, clear rubbish, negotiate deep snow and build the structures required. The concept was based on ‘the Tree’ as
the main element of life and to provide a connection for the past, the present and the future of the community. Stories from the families buried in the graveyard were collected and along with stories of the existing community projected to personalise the space. The students also used 300 hundred candles in paper bags to create new paths to encourage to people to wander through the cemetery. The end result was opened to all in order to demonstrate how light can transform a neglected and unloved space. risdurbaninterventions.wordpress.com

WRITTEN AT THE CLUB In its heyday the Reform Club was a cornerstone of ‘high society’ with Henry James and Winston Churchill calling themselves members. Zumtobel produced a lighting scheme for the club’s newly refurbished interior. The long-established Reform Club has many connections to the English glitterati, but some of the most noteworthy of these have been literary. Siegfried Sassoon wrote here and Jules Verne’s Phileas Fogg ended his trip Around the World in Eighty Days at the club. Situated in the heart of London’s Club-land the institution’s founders commissioned Sir Charles Barry to design an ‘imposing and palatial clubhouse’, which went on to open in 1841. The original decorative finish, which has been undergoing a delicate restoration, is considered one of the most important Grade 1 listed interiors in London. From the outset, a clear client vision and concept was to introduce life back into
the Grand Hall, with its galleried landings and wonderful atrium. The lighting was to be ‘the eyes’ through which to enjoy the opulent interior, providing a warm threedimensional glow that brings architectural details and artworks to life. The Bristol-based Lighting Services worked closely with the client to deliver a lighting solution that delighted English Heritage with the way it enhanced the building’s interior. Zumtobel was chosen as the appropriate partner to provide the lighting and control systems. The chosen products fulfilled the necessary requirements in terms of efficiency, sustainability and flexibility. Based on Zumtobel’s intelligent Luxmate Litenet lighting management system, Lighting Services were able
to develop an innovative concept that provided adaptable multiple DALI LED spotlights, which cross washed portraits and the once dark and out-of-sight coffered ceilings, swags and pilaster capitals. The columns are set in relief providing a wonderful overall, balanced visual effect to what is in essence a fabulous stage set. Thanks to the system’s compatibility, the lighting solution can be adjusted as required and can also be extended to incorporate other areas and fittings. Groucho Marx once famously said that he “would never care to belong to a club that will have me as a member.” For the rejuvenated Reform Club, he just might have made an exception. www.zumtobel.com

BRIDGE ON THE BRDA Bydgoszcz is a Polish city worthy of attention, with its beautiful water courses and fine concert halls, the city is polishing its look. A lighting design from Griven has added further pizzazz to an arresting new bridge. Serving as a fitting backdrop for historic buildings in the city center, the waterfront of the Brda River in the Polish city of Bydgoszcz has long been a hidden treasure. The city authorities realised it was high time to take advantage of the asset and has encouraged new initiatives aimed at renewing the riverside, including the creation of bike and pedestrian paths. Recent changes to the architectural outline of Bydgoszcz have delivered a more captivating look to the city. The most noteworthy new structure is the unusual extra-dosed bridge on the River Brda, which is made up of two differently shaped intersecting arches reaching a total height of about 230ft, which has been erected
and lit in order to facilitate urban road communication. The suspension bridge is one of a kind and is based on two horseshoe-shaped shafts that sustain, with the help of steel cables, two long spans. Specified by the construction company Elbrox, eight units of Powershine MK2 D RGBW with spot optics have been located at the base of the steel structure of the bridge for an even light distribution and an overall dynamic colour changing effect, designed by the company ElmarCo. Moreover, three units of Powershine MK2 S RGBW Spot have been installed on the nearby footbridge supplied by the distributor for Griven products in Poland, Prolight Sp. z.o.o. The Powershine MK2 units allow the double
arched construction and the pedestrian walkway to be seen from far away at night. Using a total of 192 powerful RGBW LEDs, Powershine MK2 D, is a double cluster configuration projector that offers full independent digital control of each LED bank, while Powershine MK2 S is its versatile single module version. The combination of RGBW LEDs provides a good white light output quality, as well as a wider variety of intermediate colour hues for an even,6 broader range of application purposes. The lighting scheme makes an already eyecatching structure even more appealing to the eye. www.griven.com

Megaman fixtures are used throughout the lighting design, including the Intalite Kardamod and an 11W retrofit fixture. Top Vibia Skan fittings by Lievore Altherr Molina can be seen above the reception desk. Bottom left In the downstairs sales room Prandina Notte Metal fixtures are been utilised to fine effect.
IN THE HEART OF DESIGN Tyson Lighting developed a lighting scheme for Greshamâ€™s new home on Clerkenwell Road, the heart of British design. Megaman fixtures were utilised in order to develop a stylish and economical new look. When Gresham, the designers and manufactures of stylish office and leisure furniture, acquired a new showroom on Clerkenwell Road, Londonâ€™s design hub, the company immediately began to set about creating an office space that lived up to both its product line and the slick design that is the hallmark of Clerkenwell. The office space came pre-fitted with typical office space lighting but Gresham were keen to revamp the space to suit their new showroom. The existing space consisted of two floors
with ductwork and piping, along the perimeters and covering the majority of the ceiling. The challenge was to use lighting to transform this typical industrial office space, which lacked character and was flooded with suspended fluorescent battens. In essence it was necessary to create an office environment that had the flexibility of a showroom, so buyers could easily place themselves in situ when selecting furniture. Henry Opara of Tyson Lighting, in conjunction with interior design practice Northern Backdrop, began to put together a lighting
scheme that supported these aims. Before any construction commenced the lighting design went through a very thorough process to ensure the desired outcome was achieved. Tyson worked out the existing energy consumption of the space in order to offset against the saving on the new installation, they also calculated the required lighting levels needed in all the different sections within the sales areas. With no dimming system in place or specified on the refurbishment it was even more vital that the correct levels of light were achieved.
The Northern Backdrop designed Newton’s Cradle style fixture makes for an eye-catching centerpiece to the boardroom and glass windows allow it to be seen from across the office. Stylish desk lamps also make for an important part of the lighting scheme including fixtures designed by Verner Panton.
For the main upstairs sales area Tyson used white surface mounted directional spotlights to blend into the ceiling and open up the space. The spotlights also produced a far less intense lighting effect than the previous fluorescent T5 installation. These surface mounted directional spotlights were fitted with Megaman 10W QRB111 2800K in order to lend them a warm comfortable light and also serve as a reliable LED solution. This was necessary in order to achieve energy reduction targets whist providing a good quality of light. For the downstairs sales area the same luminaires were used to highlight the furniture and give each product a spot light. In this area the lighting had to be more focused as there was a much lower ceiling height, this tends to close up the space, so it was important that Tyson use the correct
beam angles in order to isolate pieces of furniture, preventing them from getting lost in the space. The fabric display section was also a key area for consideration in the lighting design. Tyson opted to isolate this section of the space, so the lighting arrangement would be utilised to perform the task of inspecting fabrics. This was done by surface mounting a track system in a square shape, using spotlights from Intalite, which use a Philips Fortimo LED module, a product ideal for high colour rending applications and for bringing out the true colours of fabric. Tyson lighting was able to source an array of high-end decorative lighting pieces for the project, in order to give the scheme a sophisticated appeal. One of the main features of the lighting is the Northern Backdrop designed Newton’s
cradle style boardroom pendant as well as a ‘dont walk/walk sign’ custom created by Tyson for the project. This was such a valuable piece to the jigsaw puzzle that comprised this lighting design, that it was of critical importance to the project that it was done right. Tyson decided to use state of the art 3D software to build a real life visualisation of the piece, in order to remove all the guesswork before production. It also gave the designer and customer a chance to confirm that the fixture supported the required look, as well as confirming the fitting could actually be built to the specification it was designed to. When completed the interior and the lighting design meshed perfectly, creating a space that fits perfectly into the heart of Britain’s principal design district. www.tyson-lighting.co.uk

INDUSTRIAL COMPLEXITY The Kaiserstuhl mountain range is the centre of German wine country. Insta helped to light the new wine making facilities at Franz Keller, one of the nationâ€™s oldest proponents of fully-fermented dry wines. Photographs: Tom Gundelwein
Franz Keller is a winery and a restaurant in Oberbergen near Freiburg in the Black Forest area of Germany. The picturesque town is right at the heart of German wine country and the wineryâ€™s new building fits well into the surrounding Kaiserstuhl mountain landscape. Light planner Tobias Link, with whom Insta has been realizing sophisticated projects for years, designed the light installation for the new building, a structure that has been considerately adapted into its rural landscape and integrated into nature on three levels. The lighting scheme makes a luminous reference to the differing building details. Inside the building Insta LED luminaires (Instalight 1065 and 3065) have been
installed in the cellar, while luminaires from the Instalight Glow series (2030,2031 and 1031) have been installed in the offices and in the grape reception area. In addition, especially for this project, Insta fabricated Glow luminaires with 25 optics (bubbles) in RAL special lacquering DB 703. On the top level of the building the grape reception can be found, along with all the necessary functions of a winery. Next to this there is a 50-seat restaurant with a terrace, offering an amazing view over the neighboring vineyards. The grape reception and the restaurant can be converted into a multi-functional event surface for different occasions. This allows the tradition of concerts and cultural events being held in the existing cellars of
the Schwarzer Adler to continue and to be expanded upon. On the second level of the building you can find the entrance to the winery with areas for wine tasting and presentation, administration as well as the mash tanks and presses that can be filled directly from the grape reception above. Level three houses the cellar for the wooden barrels as well as the storage tanks. The lighting design for Schwarzer Adler was created with the multifunctional nature of the building very much in mind and is a successful scheme because of that consideration. www.insta.de

DO LET THE SUNSHINE IN The sunshine on Rhodes is almost unremitting with blue skies and hot weather gracing the Aegean island for the majority of the year. Electron brought a soothing light scheme to The Alila, a luxury spa and hotel.
The Alila Resort & Spa is located on Rhodes in the Aegean Sea. The sunshine island is sometimes nicknamed the island of light due to the 300 days of blue sky it is lucky enough to see every year. The sun-streaked resort has recently been renovated and has now re-opened its doors to welcome visitors and guests from all over the world. Electron SA joined the project and contributed to the illumination of the refurbished resort with the aim of creating a luxurious refuge, a paradise to share with family and friends. The general illumination of the lobby, the café, the restaurant and the pool bar was achieved with the use of more than 250 ALTRA downlights, manufactured by Electron and using Xicato XSM LED modules. These were
fitted in accordance with the requirements and specifications of each area in terms of correlated colour temperature, colour rendering index, lumen output, optics, dimming options and emergency control options. In addition to the general illumination, concealed lighting has been installed to underline the general relaxing atmosphere, making guests feel comfortable. The concealed illumination is achieved with the use of linear LED fittings that are also custom made according to the needs of the space, in terms of both colour and lumen output. Different linear fittings were also developed to fit the installation requirements of different locations throughout the site.
The whole installation can be dimmed when necessary via LED converters that Electron manufacture. These afford the user 2,040 steps of dimming, allowing a smooth control that reinforces the relaxing environment. The illumination of the lobby highlights the architecture and provides a unique setting for the ‘flying elements’ within the space when seen from a distance. The illumination of the main restaurant gels well with the scenery of rugged Rhodes and the lighting of the pool makes the notion of a nighttime dip particularly inviting. This is green installation that is entirely compatible with the luxury resort and its lush surroundings. www.electron.gr

STAR OF BARRIO RETIRO The Basilica Nuestra Senora Del Socorro is the architectural treasure of the Retiro district in Buenos Aires. A lighting scheme by Estudio Diz, featuring economical fixtures from Megaman, brought the Basilica to life. The Basilica Nuestra Senora Del Socorro (Basilica of Our Lady of Help) has been a place of worship since the 1700s. The Basilica was built on land donated by a Spanish devotee of ‘Our Lady of Mercy’ and from the marble onyx baptismal font and the frescoes on the ceilings, to the sculptures of the patron saint of Buenos Aires, San Martín de Tours, the Basilica Nuestra Senora Del Socorro is a place of both beauty for visitors and a centre of worship for the local community. The historic structure was in dire need of lighting refurbishment and internationally
renowned lighting designer, Ernesto Diz, founder of Estudio Diz, was commissioned to help develop a new scheme. As well as bringing a new vibrancy to the rich religious history displayed throughout the Basilica, it was necessary that Diz ensure that the lighting met the daily needs of the Basilica’s loyal congregation. Diz, who is renowned in the Argentinian capital for his excellent lighting of Teatro Colón, the stunning principal opera house in Buenos Aires, said of the project, “I wanted the majesty of the interior of the Basilica
to really stand out, my aim was to light the masterpieces discretely, yet lead the worshipper’s eye up the aisle to the central altar. With this in mind I decided to use tight angles to spotlight key pieces and then wider angles and warm colours to wash the columns with light, framing the altar and its magnificent sculptures.” Strong spotlighting and colour rendering was required for the project, as well as the latest in LED lamp technology in order to ensure that the ancient masterpieces were not damaged by heat or light radiation.
With high quality light intensity and colour rendering, but with no UV and negligible IR light radiation or residual glare, it was decided that Megaman’s LED AR111 and PAR30L lamps were the ideal solution for lighting a space of such historic, as well as spiritual value. Over 270 Megaman LED lamps were installed in the Basilica, creating both a beautiful and an energy efficient scheme. As well as highlighting the beautiful interior of the building, the new lighting design ensures that savings of €1,882 in electricity costs are maintained, as well as a 28,977kg in CO2 emissions per year compared to halogen equivalents. Father Gustavo Boquin, Basilica Nuestra Senora Del Socorro said of the Basilica’s transformation: “We have been following a programme of refurbishment at the Basilica
for many years and the lighting was an area that needed an upgrade. We have many works of art, frescoes and sculptures within the walls of the Basilica and we wanted to bring out the beauty of the individual pieces, as well as reduce the yearly cost of lighting the space.” Part of Megaman’s LED Reflector Series, the LED AR111 range lasts up to eight times longer and uses 80% less power than halogen equivalents. Within Basilica Nuestra Senora Del Socorro, 244 of Megaman’s AR111 10W, 2800k LEDs were used in a range of 8°, 24° and 45° beam angles, for spotlighting as well as wall washing key areas. In addition 28 Megaman PAR30L 15W, 4000k 25° and 45° LEDs were used light the ceiling frescoes. “The variety of beam angles available in Megaman’s LED Reflector Series,” said
Sebastian Serra from Artelum S.A, a distributor of Megaman LED lamps who supported Ernesto Diz on the project, “we were able to use the lamps to ‘paint with light’ throughout the Basilica.” The lighting scheme produced such a dramatic improvement that worshippers at the Basilica Nuestra Senora Del Socorro initially thought that the sculptures and frescoes had been repainted. As well as the dramatic visual improvement of the scheme, the use of low energy replacements for halogen reflectors greatly pleased the Basilica’s administration office, the reduced running costs helping the Basilica to continue to play a leading role in the community of Retiro for many years to come. www.megamanuk.com

In preparation for one of the more glitzy events on the sporting calendar, the Super Bowl, the NFL unveiled the roman numerals XLVIII on Super Bowl Boulevard in Midtown Manhattan, to focus attention on the footballing event that was held on the second of February. In conjunction with this, three iconic buildings in New York adapted their lighting schemes. The newest of these structures was One World Trade Center, which was finally completed on the 10th of May 2013, it’s spire reaching a very patriotic 1,776 feet, the year America declared its independence. The other two buildings involved were 4 Times Square (H&M Building) currently home to magazine publishing giant Condé Nast, and One Bryant Park home to the Bank of America and the third tallest building in New York after One World Trade Centre and the Empire State Building. The buildings were lit orange honouring the AFC Champion Denver Broncos, and bright
green, in order to honour the NFC Champion the Seattle Seahawks, the two teams who fought it out for the Super Bowl, with the Seattle Seahawks going on to triumph. The celebratory lighting scheme was overseen by Barbizon and was officially illuminated on Wednesday, January 29 2014. Over the course of the weekend the two team’s colours alternated until the game’s conclusion on the Sunday, when the Seattle Seahawk’s bright green was seen across the entire metropolitan region celebrating their win. Barbizon Lighting’s New York office coordinated the installation of energy-efficient, colourchanging lighting on all three of the iconic landmarks. The lighting systems that Barbizon installed and commissioned could all be remotely controlled and were coordinated by the Durst Organization. www.barbizon.com

WHAT A GAS As part of the regeneration of Brisbane’s derelict industrial areas, an iconic Victorian gas ring has been transformed into a cultural plaza, set ablaze by over 500 Anolis fixtures. The Newstead Gas Ring - a heritagelisted piece of Brisbane’s historical industrial architecture – has been reborn as Gasworks, the iconic hub of a major urban regeneration project. Launched just over two decades ago the project is part of a long term stratergy to transform the formally derelict post-industrial wasteland into a busy and vibrant contemporary living, working and commercial environment. The newly launched Gasworks Plaza, stands below the Victorian superstructure of the former gas storage ring, which has been brought to life by an integrated sound system and 500 Anolis LED lighting fixtures supplied by ULA. Lighting designer Heath Williamson of Brisbane-based Firefly, collaborated closely with Jono Perry, Technical Director of the Brisbane Festival to create a scheme of gasflame colours. It was Williamson who initially pushed the
Newstead area’s developers FKP to let him re-imagine the landmark Gas Ring as a giant public sculpture for all to enjoy. The Gas Ring is 40 metres in diameter with a circumference of 152 metres and features 20 spires each 20 metres tall. Anolis ArcDots - a super-bright Cree MC-E RGBW multichip based LED ‘pixel’ fixture with an IP67 rating for good weather resistance – are used on every bracing cross-member of steel on the middle and top rings, which are approximately 1200mm apart. There are also five runs of 7 x ArcDots at 1200mm spacings on every fourth spire, and a further 40 units up-light the finials at the top of each spire. In addition to these, 60 Anolis ArcSource 96s are utilised to up-light the main frames of each of the 20 spires, and 20 x ArcSource Integral MCs are ensconced in the ground beneath the trees around the Gasometer to complement the glowing metal.
Williamson loves the ArcSource 96s, commenting that in terms of output they were easily “the best” relatively compact outdoor LED flood that they tested. Ahead of making the final decision, he and Perry travelled to Singapore’s Garden By The Bay where they saw ArcSource 96s in action lighting the Supertrees, and that impressed them enough to confirm the fixtures for the Gas Ring. “I love the power and the throw,” he adds. All the lighting is controlled via an e:cue DMX system which was programmed by Williamson and Perry. Perry produced four special ten minute musical tracks for a weekend lightshow which plays out on Friday and Saturday nights. During the week the Ring is lit after dark in a signature scheme of different colours to suit the season or special events. www.anolis.eu

BREAD DONE BETTER OMS helped turn a centuries old family bakery into a fresh brand for the modern consumer. When Martin Auer took over the family bakery business, he saw an opportunity to combine the three centuries of traditional expertise with a fresh, modern aesthetic. Auer applied an entrepreneurial approach, keeping the existing quality of the products and services, whilst at the same time developing and growing the brand. Following consultation with Austrian lighting specialist LEDFORLIVING, he decided to introduce LED technology into his three newly opened bakeries in Graz. Specifically, luminaires from OMS Lighting were selected with the aim of achieving optimal illumination for both product display and customer comfort, while also helping to create an elegant interior design. Architect Markus Katzenberger helped develop the new Auer bakeries. “We wanted the lighting to provide optimal illumination in terms of light colour and intensity, while at the same time we naturally wanted it to have an elegant design,” he says. “The result was more than impressive. I wasn’t
previously aware that LED lighting already has these required properties and is also particularly attractive in terms of the design of the light fixtures. This really made a positive contribution to my architectural design.” At the bakery’s Center Nord and Center Seiersberg outlets two high-end luminaires were installed. The Rebell LED was selected due to its retail-oriented lighting properties and the fact that it could be custom produced in black to match the company logo, integrating perfectly with the brand image. The Track Avior Advanced was also used, its high efficiency and excellent lighting parameters helping make the bread produce look irresistible. In the third bakery, located in Tumerplatz, the main goal was to achieve optimum performance within a complex interior architecture. OMS’s Zipar Duo, Zipar Trio Recessed and Tarf had the versatility necessary for the space.
Eva Kuß, DI Architect at coabitare, worked on the Auer Tummelplatz site. “From its planning through to its realisation, this project was very quick indeed,” she says. “Illuminating the café and shop using conventional lighting was an arduous process. What’s more, there were technical building specifications that could only be satisfied with certain models. The result and delivery time of the LED products now in use were more than satisfactory. Until now, I didn’t realise that LED lighting of this quality is more than a match for conventional lighting.” For Martin Auer, the lighting has proved a success on a number of fronts. “I am highly satisfied with the result, because it’s not just the visual appearance of my products that has improved significantly: the amount of energy that I have saved in return for the same light quality is also really impressive,” he says. www.omslighting.com

OPENING UP A DIALOGUE The City of Bologna has refurbished Piazza Minghetti, one of its historic squares, thanks to the creation of an inventive lighting scheme from Viabizzuno. The City of Bologna is one of the most vibrant, lively and flourishing cities in Italy. Piazza Minghetti has a number of functions ranging from garden to desirable lunching spot, yet thanks to project architect Glauco Gresleri’s project, the 4500 sqm space is now even more suited to its role as a busy public space. The project has been designed to evoke presence of the Aposa, a river that until the end of the nineteenth century, still flowed through the area. The project inserts itself with the urban
context of Bologna, taking into account the historic nature of the city. Differing elements of the square have been given precise identities, from the via dei Toschi, to the garden, the post office palace, the savings bank and Piazza del Francia. The new look square is an inviting place to stop and take a moment to relax on the benches and take in the dramatic building facades of the Palazzi del Mengoni. The bus platforms have been made transparent to better the view, giving the area a perspective depth, while making the houses on the
via de’Toschi. The lighting design was created by Mario Nanni who chose fixtures featuring a 3500k colour temperature, which allows for realistic colour rendering and differentiates the lighting in the square from the traditional yellowish urban lighting in the rest of the city, while highlighting the beauty of the piazza’s setting. The Sentiero di Vals light guides visitors through the space. This IP65 outdoor light fitting is made in one piece and integrates seamlessly into its environment, merging
with the nineteenth century architectural context of the setting, thanks to its simple, but modern shape. Aligned parallel to these fixtures, is the GiraeFFe dissuasore, a fixture that features a 1W LED accent light. The Central monument in the square by Marco Minghetti, of an Italian politician from the nineteenth century, is now placed on the pavement. A special quality is given to the object due to the emotional strength of Mario Nanni’s design, he has composed a luminous symphony, both poetic and respectful of the energy consumption required. The Lucus family of lights has also been used on the project, an IP65 system for outdoor use and consists of four stainless steel tubes, holding several light sources. It was decided by those working on the project to integrate past and present in the
project new technologies and old light fittings, creating a contemporary project that respects tradition, giving life to a design that originated from the notion of ‘conservative renovation of light’. The aim of this project was to make citizens using the space feel safe and to bring life back to this urban area, prompting visitors see a familiar area in a completely different light. All this arose from a discreet, functional and well designed lighting scheme, which maintained some of the piazza’s original light fittings and cast the surrounding buildings in a supportive, economical light. The carefully judged lighting level ensures the surrounding buildings, such as the post office palace and the savings bank, which comprise the scenic background to the garden, underlines the building’s formal identity and give them the relevant volumetric
element. The chosen lighting level does not act to flatten the architecture. What has been created is a nighttime interpretation of the city, which changes the perception of the urban area. Taking into account the many roles the piazza plays, an efficient lighting scheme has been designed, utilising metal halide light sources and street furniture LED sources, which are long lasting and boast a minimum maintenance cost. Light has created a cohesion between the important architectonic elements of the square, restoring a dialogue between the urban space and those who live in it, during the day as well as the night, acting as an emotional, sensory space, feeling critical to well being. www.viabizzuno.com

THOUGHT PROVOKING The new home of the Society of Christian Doctrine in Malta is a thoroughly modern structure devoted entirely to thought and contemplation. L&L Luce&Light developed a fitting lighting scheme. L&L Luce&Light, in cooperation with architect Richard England and Light Design Solutions in Malta, created Dar Il-Hanin Samaritan, a futuristic new home for the Society of Christian Doctrine, in Santa Venera on Malta. The modernist structure has been built in reverence to Saint George Preca, an influential religious figure on the tiny Mediterranean Island. Preca was an inspirational religious icon
during the time when Malta was still part of the British Empire and he still inspires religious devotion to this day. A lighting design was created to ensure that the strikingly forward looking architecture of the building stood out at night. The lighting scheme emphasises the differing shapes that form a critical part of the structure and the many changing and altering perspectives that make the site such an interesting building to wander through.
The lighting has been developed to highlight and underline the sense of silence that is found in the space. As this is a religious location, the opportunity for thought, prayer and contemplation has to be offered and encouraged. The lighting scheme seeks to calm and inspire, the soft colours creating an atmosphere where it is easy to think and contemplate, as thought is the principled activity of those who use the building. www.lucelight.it

PARIS JE T’AIME Inspired by the glamour of Saint-Tropez in the 1960s, the Hotel de Paris, located in the Cote d’Azur town, features an inventive and economical lighting design from Crestron.
Built in the 1920s, the Hôtel de Paris, located in the centre of Saint-Tropez, was forgotten until renowned hotelier Claude Dray decided to renovate it. The project was orchestrated by the architect François Vieillecroze. One of the main innovations brought to the hotel industry by the Hôtel de Paris was the addition of automation systems in all the guestrooms. The designer, Sybille de Margerie decorated the rooms, using several inspirational themes such as Saint-Tropez and the arts and the 1960s era. When the guest enters their room, a welcoming and refined lighting scene is automatically activated. The scenario can then easily be changed via an engraved keypad. The Crestron lighting solutions enable the
staff to better manage guests in the hotel as they can monitor the energy levels of each guestroom and suites thanks to occupancy warnings and alerts with the ‘Service’ or ‘Do not disturb’ button. Guest requests are signaled via flashing LEDs, replacing the bells of old, which are reproduced in the corridors or at the reception desk so that staff are much more reactive to satisfy guest’s needs. Crestron lighting solutions have also been installed within the common areas, reception desk, bar, restaurant and hotel lobby. Crestron dimmers provide different lighting scene settings according to the time of the day or for special events. Crestron enabled scene settings allowing another opportunity to increase energy savings. The Hôtel de Paris is equipped with
three meeting rooms that can be adapted for different configurations and dimensions. These meeting rooms are all equipped with a Crestron DigitalMedia TM system. Three iPads manage the control of the lighting, audio and video in each of the meeting rooms. The project installers, Energie Côté Sud and Domotic helped realise the vision given by Crestron and the investor. “It was a great opportunity to implement Crestron solutions in this hotel,” says Alexis Nazarian, Sales Manager at Domotic. “It meets the increasing demands within the hotel industry to integrate automation systems, not only for the comfort of the guests but also to increase energy savings.” www.crestron.com

VENICE AT NIGHT Philips lighting and Litek worked together to bring a new lighting scheme to Venice, replacing antique light sources with LED, casting a beautiful city in an entirely new light.
Venice is a city for lovers. An evening spent traveling along the Canal Grande or strolling through the spacious Piazza San Marco is enhanced by a warm glow from antique luminaires. So when it came time to upgrade to a more energy-efficient lighting solution, Venetians and historians, including the Commission for the Architectural and Landscape Heritage, got involved to see to it that the exact lighting quality in all of Venice was preserved. Litek, the Italian provider of lighting fixtures was commissioned for the project and decided to use Philips Lumileds LEDs within the fixtures after four years of testing. In partnering with Philips Lumileds, Litek
was able to deliver LED lighting that was 80% more efficient, yet maintained the light quality (lumen output and colour temperature) of the previous mercury discharge lamp technology. Piazza San Marco was designed for people, a vast public space in the heart of Venice. At night the perception of notable architectural structures in the piazza including the Basilica de San Marco, the Torre dellâ€™Orologio (Clock Tower) and the Palazzo Ducale, is keenly affected by the lighting. For this reason, it became necessary to maintain the exact light quality that was delivered by the mercury discharge lamps of the past, when they were replaced by energy-efficient LED lamps.
On the piazza, post-top luminaries were fitted with LUXEON K high-lumen-density arrays due to their high efficiency, ease of use and low maintenance. Along the Canal Grande, across the Accademia Bridge and in the Rialto shopping area, a second type of luminaire has been used, which also utilised halogen bulbs. The retrofit LED luminaires incorporate LUXEON M high-flux-density emitters that have been optimised for high efficiency and consistent colour point. When the project was completed, over 1,000 luminaries in these areas had been retrofitted with LED emitters. www.lighting.philips.co.uk www.litek.it

REMAKING THE OFFICE Solatube International have created an innovative and economical lighting scheme for DPR Construction’s Phoenix Regional Office.
Solatube International, Inc the manufacturer and marketer of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs), recently played a large role in daylighting DPR Construction’s Phoenix Regional Office. The circa-1972 building has been officially certified as a Net-Zero Energy Building (NZEB) by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) through its Living Building Challenge program. It has also received LEED-NC Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). DPR Construction is a national technical builder specialising in highly complex and sustainable projects. Eight-two Solatube Daylighting Systems were installed in the renovated 16,533-building, formerly an abandoned retail boutique at
the corner of 44th Street and Van Buren in Phoenix. In less than ten months, designbuild team researched, designed, permitted and built a highly efficient and modern workplace with numerous innovative sustainability features. “The use of Solatube Daylighting Systems was an integral part of our sustainability and lighting energy savings plans for the renovated space,” said Dave Elrod, regional manager, DPR Construction Phoenix. “Solatube products are a cost-efficient solution to provide lighting since they nearly eliminate the need for artificial daytime lighting.” Other features of the office building include an 87-foot, zinc clad solar chimney (releases hot air from the building while drawing
cooler air in); shower towers that act as evaporative coolers to regulate building temperatures; 87 operable windows designed to open and close automatically (based on indoor/outdoor temperatures); and two ‘vampire’ shut-off switches to keep electrical devices (radios, cell phone chargers, microwaves) from using power plug energy when no one is in the office. The architecture/engineering firm on the project was SmithGroupJJR and the Solatube Commercial Distributor was Norcon Industries. DPR’s San Diego office first used the Solatube Daylight in its building in 2010, followed by Phoenix in 2011 and Raleigh-Durham, NC in 2012. www.solatube.com/commercial

A NEW ENLIGHTENMENT The IALD Enlighten Europe conference will take place in Berlin on 9-11 November hot on the heals of successful events in Asia and North America. The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) Enlighten conference will return to Europe - specifically, Berlin - on 9-11 November 2014. IALD is proud to expand its portfolio of international programming on the heels of the success of Enlighten Asia 2013, the first of IALD’s conferences in Asia, and Enlighten Americas 2013, which drew a record number of attendees. The IALD Enlighten Europe Content Advisory Group will meet during Light + Building to finalize the roster of speakers and content areas for the conference. This group is chaired by Tad Trylski, Associate IALD, and includes Enrique Peiniger, IALD; Gerd Pfarré, FIALD; Anna Sbokou, Jr. Associate IALD; and Andreas Schulz, IALD.
The educational sessions for IALD Enlighten Europe will be organised into three dedicated tracks (Art, Science and Professional Tools), allowing attendees to focus on one content area or to mix and match for a bespoke conference experience that’s all their own. IALD Enlighten conferences are unique in the lighting-related conference environment in that attendee numbers are carefully curated based on host city and venue to maintain a boutique feel. To ensure a quality experience, registration will be limited to 500 attendees. “We’re looking forward to bringing together the European Content Advisory Group, comprised of an outstanding team of renowned professionals, to shape a conference with
genuine European relevance and expertise,” says Tad Trylski, Assoc. IALD. “IALD’s Enlighten conferences are well known for the quality of speakers, valuable content and professional networking, and we now have the exciting opportunity and responsibility to build a specifically European conference addressing the needs of the global lighting design profession.” Previously held in coordination with The ARC Show in London, Enlighten Europe 2014 will be held in Berlin, Germany - and will return to different cities in Europe on even-numbered years. Already confirmed for IALD Enlighten Europe is a keynote presentation by one of the founders of the globally heralded
design firm, seymourpowell. Founders Richard Seymour and Dick Powell lead the London-based group of award-winning designers, and have produced some of the milestone products of the last two decades. seymourpowell’s Richard Seymour kicked off IALD Enlighten Americas 2012 with a keynote address that attendees called “powerful”, “inspiring”, and “amazing”. Providing a fresh, non-lighting perspective to a room full of industry professionals, Seymour’s perspective on innovative product design demonstrated how lighting professionals can interpret and leverage their place in a designed world. Attendees were abuzz about the session throughout the conference, and many noted it as one of the highlights of
the weekend. IALD is also excited to bring other successful elements of its Enlighten conferences to a European audience at Enlighten Europe. The conference series is heralded by attendees as a unique opportunity to network with their peers and become re-invigorated by the power of light. Attendees can look forward to connecting at exciting evening events, as well as niche networking opportunities that appeal to their love of light. “More than ever, the architectural lighting design profession is in the spotlight for its leadership in matters related to quality of light,” says Gerd Pfarre, FIALD. “This conference offers a great opportunity to explore the power of light just as the world
begins preparations for the UNESCO International Year of Light in 2015.” Lighting specifiers in attendance will also have the opportunity to participate in Lighting Cross Talk, a unique chance to provide feedback on the latest lighting products to manufacturers in an intimate, focus groupstyle environment. Attendees of Enlighten conferences describe Cross Talk as “indispensible” – a place where they can lead the conversation rather than follow it. www.iald.org

TECHNOLOGY / BENCH TEST
David Morgan comes across Darklightâ€™s Gantom IQ Micro Image Projector, the smallest gobo projector on the market today, and finds it packs a much bigger punch than its small size suggests.
SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL
In the words of the early 20th century Austrian economist Leopold Kohr small is beautiful. The founders of the American based lighting company, Darklight, have followed this simple idea - at least in part - by creating a range that includes the smallest LED gobo projectors that I have seen so far. However, whilst they are small, but not exactly beautiful, they are certainly attractive. Darklight was founded by three business partners Quan Gan, his wife Charlie Xu, and Jun Dong in spring of 2010 when they operated the first Halloweâ€™en attraction in mainland China. Apparently they could not find any suitable luminaires for the occasion and decided to quickly develop and launch their own
using their diverse skills. Quan Gan holds multiple engineering degrees from UC Berkeley and Stanford University with a focus in robotics, Xu has an art and design background from Shanghai Tongji University, while Dong has extensive manufacturing experience as a former employee of Cree and Tokistar. Since then, the company has developed a limited range of compact LED luminaires including mini projectors, DMX controlled colour changing projectors and gobo projectors, whose primary markets are amusement parks and museums. Ceiling rings are also included in the range to allow the luminaires to be recessed. The most interesting product in the range is the Gantom IQ Micro Image Projector. This mini gobo projector is only 90mm long with a 30mm diameter tubular body. The perceived quality of this mini luminaire is good, with a simple satin black machined finish and neatly knurled angle adjustment
screws. Even with a very cool white single 2.7 watt Cree XPG LED source the light output is quite limited but at close range it can provide quite dynamic effects under the right ambient lighting conditions. The body and lens holder seem to provide sufficient heat sinking surface area so the body does not get more than warm although I did not investigate how effectively the LED is thermally bonded to the body. At a distance of three metres and with the zoom set at 25 degrees the light level in the centre beam is 35 lux. The zoom lens adjusts from 25 to 40 degrees and is lockable with a couple of small screws. The focusing adjustment is made in the same way with two lockable screws. The quality of the lenses is not the highest but perfectly adequate for the scale and type of projects where this projector is used.
As with all LED based gobo projectors the user is able to make their own slides using ink jet printers as there is so little heat in the beam compared to halogen projectors.
The 19mm diameter gobo is a custom size but the usual gobo suppliers will produce to this scale. As with all LED based gobo projectors the user is now able to make their own slides using ink jet printers as there is so little heat in the beam compared to halogen projectors. In this case the resolution of the slide would need to be high as the image is so tiny. Changing the gobo is easy and involves unscrewing the lens holder and removing a cover. An integral constant current DC to DC driver keeps the LED running at a safe level of 225mA. The DMX version has three channels to control light intensity, strobe, candle flicker and other pattern effects and thirdly speed of pattern change. Although Darklight claims an IP65 rating and UL wet location listing for the luminaire, the lens holder itself is not sealed so there is nothing to prevent water and dust from entering this area and settling on the lens which over time will affect the light output.
The 12 VDC power input and DMX signal connection are supplied with a simple non IP rated power jack which also makes the IP 65 rating somewhat questionable. The Gantom IQ Micro Image Projector is an attractive luminaire for use in niche applications where the miniature size will enable it to be used where larger luminaires might be too visible or out of scale. Although giving the impression of being almost toy-like, it actually creates bright, well-defined images and effects for professional applications making this a successful addition to the Darklight range. www.darklightsystem.com

The Designers With Light Forum is a new type of lighting design conference that will bring different design professionals together to talk about light. There are many lighting conferences and seminars across the world. However, the majority appear to be by the lighting industry for the lighting industry. The Designers With Light Forum will offer a more diverse range of presentations by reaching out to design professionals outside the lighting industry as well as within. Presenters will include Lighting Designers, Architects, Product Designers, Manufacturers and Interior Designers. A select band of professionals who have different experiences of working with light. The goal of the Designers With Light Forum is to combine an exceptional conference programme with a unique networking platform that brings together individuals and companies who have not previously had the opportunity to all meet in one space. The conference provides an informative schedule of highly prolific speakers which in turn brings a distinguished list of attendee’s benefiting everyone involved. WHO WILL ATTEND? Lighting Designers, Architects, Product Designers, Manufacturers, Interior Designers, Engineers, Retailers, Property Developers. WHO ARE THE ORGANISERS? The Designers With Light Forum is organised by mondo*arc and darc magazines in association with May Design Series by UBM and is supported by the IALD and SLL. It is sponsored by Concord, Xicato, Megaman, Lumenpulse and acdc - five of the most creative lighting manufacturers on the market. The goals of the magazines and May Design Series
is to appeal to the different design professionals in the built environment. We believe strongly that lighting professionals needs to communicate with design professionals and vice versa in order to teach and learn more about the principles of good lighting design. Lighting design is more than lux levels, watts per square metre or the Colour Rendering Index. It’s about creative flair, inspirational projects and exciting interactions of light. This is what mondo*arc and darc have always stood for and promoted and the Designers With Light Forum is a continuation of this principle. HOW TO ATTEND? Simply register for May Design Series taking place at London ExcEL 18th-20th May. The Designers With Light Forum will be situated in a specially built seminar theatre on the show floor of the Lighting Sector which will feature a diverse range of architectural and decorative lighting exhibitors.

With Light + Building fast approaching, we bring you a taste of what you can expect to find in Frankfurt Messe and beyond.
The time has almost come to join the 196,000 visitors who flock to Frankfurt Messe every two years for Light + Building. To help you navigate the multilevel halls and moving walkways, we’ve put together a preview of the product launches and add on events you can expect to find at this year’s show. Top of the list is the mondo*arc stand, located on the busy foyer walkway outside hall 4.1, where you’ll be able to pick up extra copies and share your latest news with a member of the team. www.light-building.messefrankfurt.com
THE BUILDING FUTURE AWARD The Building Future Award will be presented to Professor Helga Kromp-Kolb during the opening ceremony of this year’s Light + Building. The Austrian scientist is renowned for her achievements in the field of environmental meteorology, especially in relation to the dispersion of harmful substances into the atmosphere and climate change. Her numerous scientific publications over the years include studies on the dispersion of radioactive substances from Chernobyl and on hypothetical accidents in atomic power stations, as well as systematic and practical works on global and, in particular, regional scenarios. In this connection, Professor Kromp-Kolb draws attention to the significance of technology in terms of climate protection: “Increases in energy efficiency represent a very important contribution to climate protection whereby efficiency is greatly dependent on the prudential use of energy. Technology can help control energy consumption to this end.”

Beyond the exhibition ground, the bienneal Luminale light festival will once again take place across Frankfurt. Held in tandem with Light + Building, this showcase for creative light art installations proves universally popular to visitors both in and outside the industry. Besides the traditional Luminale venues, such as ‘Börsenplatz’, ‘Hauptwache’, ‘Römer’ and ‘Palmengarten’, the focus will also be on the Main Railway Station (Hauptbahnhof) as a cathedral of mobility, as well as the illumination of the River Main urban area, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2014. From being an area of shadow dividing Frankfurt, the river and its banks have developed into an artery of light for the city and the region. A new bridge illumination in the east of the city, at the foot of the new ECB Tower, will extend this urban area towards the neighbouring city of Offenbach – an example of how Luminale contributes to the sustainable development of Frankfurt’s urban landscape. Further upstream, there will also be several Luminale installations in Offenbach. The Port District with the ‘Hafen 2’ off location, the Heyne factory and a variety of Art Spaces demonstrates the potential of the city as a creative location. www.luminale.de

INSPIRATIONS / #24 CLAUDIA KAPPL ,. CLL CLL.CONCEPT . CONCEPTLIGHTING LIGHTINGLAB LAB
Like the last Back Page, this edition is also based on the idea that what inspires us is already around us, should we choose to look, and our friend Claudia Kappl of Concept Lighting Lab has chosen to use an image of her local surroundings to illustrate what it is about light that inspires her. She is lucky enough to live and work under the vast Arizona sky and we are jealous of her unrestricted access to such an incredible shifting and changing backdrop for life. Claudia says: “Most often my inspiration derives from the experience of a short and epiphanal moment during the day. A moment where light catches my attention and stops me in my tracks. A moment where light is comforting or glaring, sudden or subtle, poetic or harsh. The impact of this moment becomes inspirational and leaves me filled with wonder or joy. It depends on the ‘becoming aware’, ‘the registering’ of the presence of (or lack of) light in its manifold ways. To that extent, what inspires me about light has a lot to do with ‘learning to see’.” Photo: © Claudia Kappl . Tucson/Arizona . Sunset.
