Light, Scaled – Student Exhibition and Awards Ceremony

6:00 PM to 10:00 PM

404 Event Space
404 10th Avenue, near Penn Station
New York, NY

Please join the IESNYC for an evening of food and drink and an amazing exhibition of lighting designs from students in the New York City area. Enjoy the suspense as we announce the First, Second, and Third Prize winners, who will win cash awards of $2,000, $1,000, and $500 respectively, and additional prizes to other notable projects at the awards presentation.

This year’s theme, LIGHT, SCALED, challenges students to construct a three-dimensional study that explores the scale of light and its impact on perception. Light informs our perception of scale and space, changing how we see the world around us. As we move through our environment and shift our perspective, the scale of light influences our perception. Light is present at every scale: as a traveling photon, a playful luminaire, or the memorable Manhattan skyline.


Keynote Speaker Enrique Peiniger

Architectural engineer and OVI Principal, Enrique Peiniger approaches lighting design holistically. For Enrique, this has become a precise, technologically groundbreaking methodology (Lighting Powers of 10) that provides custom solutions for all types and scales of award-winning lighting projects spanning the globe. An accomplished lecturer and lighting educator, Enrique has led lighting design workshops and presented at professional lighting congresses and universities worldwide, including lectures at Yale University, Light Insight Arabia Conference in Dubai, Light Middle East in Dubai, the Technical University of Berlin and Parsons The New School for Design.

Enrique’s holistic approach influences and renders OVI as a culturally sensitive lighting studio that activates space through the use of natural and artificial light, the manipulation of architectural materials and surfaces, and the creation of novel technological systems. Their beautifully inventive use of light responds to each project’s individuality creating iconic designs that have become part of our cultural memory. The subject of two monographs, Lighting Design Process and Lighting Powers of 10, OVI’s work was also the subject of a solo exhibition at the Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin.
