Knowing what judges are looking for will get you much closer to taking home a trophy in a lighting awards programme. Here we outline the seven things you need to include in your entry to maximise your chances.
Dean Skira, Skira Architectural Lighting
The best outdoor projects are those in which the lighting is integrated into the landscape or urban realm. Achieving layers of embedded lighting requires creativity and a unique approach to each location. Here Dean Skira explores some of his recent projects – such as Cikat Bay, Croatia – and shows how the integration was achieved to re-interpret the nightscape.
Paul Boken, Mulvey & Banani Lighting
Bridges are the perfect canvas for the lighting designer’s art, but there are choices to be made: Do you articulate or subvert the architecture? Light surfaces or introduce delineation? Monochrome or colour change?VIEW ON DEMAND
Peter Veale, Firefly Lighting Design
We look at the key lighting trends and techniques from cutting-edge interiors, and we’ll show you how to apply them to make diners feel special and food look fabulous.
Bruce Kirk, Light Perceptions
Churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and buildings of faith require a considered approach which balances contemporary techniques with a respect for sanctity and heritage. We show you how to achieve this.
Lee Prince, Light + Design Associates
Yards and clients are increasingly demanding superlative lighting designs to match the interior finishes. We show how – with a combination of LED integration techniques and controls – you can achieve stunning results.
Kevan Shaw, KSLD
Lighting and the judicious use of controls are vital tools in the curation, protection and narration of collections and objects. We examine current best practice and look at innovative approaches in leading institutions.
