The New School Parsons Summer Intensive Lighting Design Studio @ The New School
Jun 11 @ 9:00 am – Jun 18 @ 6:00 pm

Parsons Summer Intensive Lighting Design Studio is a week-long immersion experience that exposes students to the working process and application techniques for lighting design. Taking advantage of the expertise in the MFA Lighting Design program at Parsons, participants spend a full seven days in the studio environment working on a lighting design project sited in New York city. Students participate in hands-on exercises that examine the technical and poetic relationship that natural light and electric light have with architecture, while at the same time taking advantage of the vast design resources in the New York metropolitan area and new tools and techniques for lighting design. For professionals, the studio is an opportunity to refresh and re-tool with other practicing professionals in an academic studio environment.

University housing is also available (but not required) in suite-style dormitories from 6/9/18 through 6/19/18.

Tuition: $2,100 Housing: $755

IES Webinar: Solving LED Dimming Issues in Retrofit Projects
Oct 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

LEDs are the go to light source for the replacement of existing lamps and luminaires providing a significant reduction in energy and an extended lifespan. LEDs can fit any form factor, and are extremely malleable compared to what we’ve been using in the past. However, dimming LEDs require careful coordination of lamps, drivers and controls to ensure proper performance. The session walks through dimming expectations for LEDs vs. incandescent such as dimming floor, color temperature, and linearity; the most common problems with LED dimming such as power line noise and how to address them. Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
