They say you can’t light the play until you’ve read the script. What is the “script” in architectural lighting design? Can early discussions regarding the needs and preferences of the end users, together with an understanding of visual-psychological-physiological goals, serve to create more productive and aesthetically pleasing environments? It’s also been said that creativity exists within constraints. Is it possible that illumination standards, codes and laws be viewed not so much as limitations of the creative process, serving as an impetus to increased innovation as well?
With the ever-increasing complexity that is lighting design in the 21st century, earlier involvement can serve to enhance the collaborative process. In a world in which the visual task is increasingly light itself, can an argument be made that it is never too early for lighting professionals to become involved in the design process? That lighting conceptualization may actually initiate the discussions around architecture and the built environment?
Our panel will discuss and relay their experiences, providing insights, opinions and even some answers to that timely question of when to call the lighting designer…NOW is never too early!
