Lecture: Tools of the Trade: A Lighting Design Primer Landscape Architects and Planners

Nov 16, 2015


Lighting Designer Patrick Quigley, IALD returns to Design Workshop to continue his discussion of illuminating the landscaping environment—from individual sites to district master plans. In this follow-up session, Patrick will focus on providing a broad knowledge of the types of light fixtures available and how they can be used to reveal a design, dramatize its features and help users navigate the space. The lecture will also touch on new sustainable lighting strategies to consider at planning and design phases, as well as the possibilities and challenges posed by the advent of LED technologies. Whether your project is a planned community or a small private residence, understanding tools and sustainable approaches will greatly enhance its nighttime value to users and clients.
