The Illuminating Engineers Society is bringing a pair of lighting design seminars to Alberta’s largest cities. Both themed ‘Listen to the Architecture,’ the seminars are coming to Calgary and Edmonton on April 18 and April 19 respectively, featuring lighting designer Chip Israel as a keynote speaker and presenter.
Using case studies, these IES presentations will provide input into the evaluation of various architecture and interior spaces and show how to use lighting to enhance the overall effect and mood. The seminars will discuss options available to the designer, presentation techniques, and finally finished photos showing the end results of the method employed. The philosophy will show how lighting can direct attention, identify details, shape spaces, and create moods. Various lighting techniques such as layered lighting, shadow and highlights, and colour will be explored. The discussion will provide some insight and first hand practical examples of the challenges that face lighting designers to augment and enhance the architecture of the space.
Chip Israel is an internationally recognised lighting designer with over 33 years of experience. In 1992, he founded a full-service architectural lighting design firm, where he built a highly-select team of lighting-design professionals who now serve a variety of clients worldwide. As founder, Chip works closely with the owner, the design team, and manufacturers to ensure lighting systems are fully integrated with the architectural design and enhance the designer’s concepts. His firm has also been recognised by winning over 100 National and International design awards, including multiple awards for sustainable lighting design.
Engineers and lighting Designers, architects and interior designers, as well as lighting retrofit contractors, are all invited to next month’s IES seminars. April 18th’s Calgary event will take place at cSPACE King Edward, while the following day’s Edmonton seminar will take place at the Royal Glenora Club.
