Today, Outdoor lighting is presented with a multitude of competing and significant challenges. The lighting designer strives to create a beautiful and aesthetically pleasing result but must balance this with environmental concerns (Dark Sky and wildlife), safety, efficiency, the impact of aging population, and project cost. In many cases, a lighting designer may not be part of the process, and the result can be less than desirable and potentially even harmful.
At LightFair, a panel discussion consisting of longtime friends, collaborators and design experts will address this critical issue on May 21, 2023, from 2pm-5pm EST. The panel, now in its eighth year, is comprised Nancy Clanton, Chip Israel, Charles Stone, Randy Burkett, Naomi Miller, and Rick Utting and they are on crusade to educate the world on how one can use less light in outdoor spaces.
This seminar will cover topics incorporating: pedestrian reassurance, hazard detection, wayfinding, responsible design (controls, spectrum, BUG ratings), community lighting zones and other essential design elements. They will also venture into the new IES recommended practices (LP-2 / RP-43) that provide guidelines on quality outdoor lighting. This panel discussion is one you will not want to miss at LightFair.
