Glenn Shrum, Director of MA Program in Lighting Design

Natural light sources and their associated phenomena are distinguished by their capacity to incite awe, fear, curiosity, and fascination — emotions that contribute to the sense that we are part of a larger system we may never fully understand. Solar light, which encompasses both sunlight and daylight, offers an opportunity for designers to incorporate the dynamism and variability of natural light into the built environment as a counterpoint to the relative stability of architectural form. This event — featuring leaders in the field including Davidson Norris from Carpenter Norris Consulting, Star Davis from Arup and others — will expand upon critical issues of place and practice that impact natural light and architecture. This program expands upon questions raised in the upcoming Natural Light issue of Lighting: Illumination in Architecture magazine (UK) edited by Glenn Shrum, Director of Parsons Lighting Design program and principal of Flux Studio.
