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 will expand upon critical issues of place and practice that impact natural light and architecture. This program expands upon issues 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.

Please join us, October 26th in conversation with Aki Ishida Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech School of Architecture + Design, Davidson Norris from Carpenter Norris Consulting and Star Davis from Arup.
