There have always been concerns that impacted our designs such as budgets, schedules, and product availability but today there are many new areas of concern. We are suddenly asked to incorporate circadian lighting, address Coronavirus (or the next pandemic), address concerns for specific individuals who may have medical conditions that make them particularly sensitivity to glare or flicker. Controls used to be a switch or a dimmer on the wall and maybe a 4-scene preset if it was a particularly upscale place. Now we have wireless technologies, PoE, “smart” cities and buildings, digital twins, WiFi and LiFi. Energy use has always been a part or our design but broader topics of sustainability and equity and now being addressed. How do we keep up? Develop new expertise? How much do our clients care about these topics? Are we really designing for them? With demand for expertise in these areas growing, are our clients changing? Are they asking more from us? We’ll ask these questions and more and get answers from a distinguished guest panel.
Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
Denise Fong has more than 30 years of experience in specialized lighting design. Recognized by her professional peers with numerous design achievement awards, she is highly skilled in developing high quality, energy efficient lighting systems for a wide variety of project types.
A national leader in sustainable design initiatives, Denise believes that good lighting design should be mindful of the use of raw materials and energy consumption without sacrificing the surprise and joy that lighting can add to an environment. Keeping abreast of rapidly changing technologies, she focuses on innovations in lighting systems and taking advantage of daylighting techniques and LED technology.
Denise is the author of numerous articles for national publications and speaks frequently on lighting design issues.
It was Steven Rosen’s keen interest in applying theatrical lighting techniques to traditionally non-theatrical environments that led to his founding Available Light in 1992. The originality and grand scale of Steven’s designs are evident in such one-of-a-kind award-winning projects as: The International Spy Museum, The Neural Climber at The Franklin Institute, the iconic lighting scheme lighting for the 150th anniversary of Pennsylvania’s Horseshoe Curve, and the lighting system renovation for The National Archives Rotunda. His commitment to responsible design solutions, including assuring LEED certification for a number of projects, is central to his work. Other significant milestones include receiving both the IALD Radiance Award—architectural lighting’s highest honor and the LDI Redden Award for sustained achievement in lighting design. Steven’s museum work has been honored with multiple and coveted Themed Entertainment Association Awards for The Liberty Science Center, The U-505 at MSI Chicago, The National Museum of the Marine Corp, The National Infantry Museum and The Reynolds Education Center at Mt. Vernon. Architectural works include projects for the Harvard, MIT, UMass, Analog Devices Inc., the Sea Island Cloister Hotel and Spa, Boston Children’s Hospital, Penn State, and a series of historic statues along Boston’s storied Commonwealth Avenue Mall. Special Events and Trade Show clients include Novartis, Sabic, Bayer, Sikorsky Helicopter, LG, IBM, Biogen, Philips Lighting, and Lights in Alingsås in Sweden. Steven holds a BFA in Stage Design from Webster University, an MFA in Stage Design from NYU and is a Fellow of the International Association of Lighting Designers. He is a current member of the IALD LIRC, Past-President of the IALD Education Trust and endows a scholarship program in architectural lighting design. He is adjunct faculty in the graduate program of Exhibit and Experience Design at FIT in NYC; he is passionate about developing the next generation of lighting designers.
