Lighting Design & Specification

Harbin Opera House

May 10, 2017

Luminaries of the lighting profession gathered on 10 May to honor the winners of the 34th Annual International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) International Lighting Design Awards. Twenty-two projects from eight countries were on display – including interiors, monuments, façades, museums, and a residence. This year’s winners represent some of the most innovative and inspiring work found anywhere in the world of architectural lighting design.
The highest point score winner across all categories, in addition to receiving an Award of Excellence for their project, receives the IALD Radiance Award for Excellence in Lighting Design. Winners of the Radiance Award do not know in advance of their Radiance Award-winning status prior to the evening—only that they should be present at the evening’s award ceremony.

The IALD International Lighting Design Awards program is the longest-running awards program recognizing excellence in architectural lighting design. The program honors lighting design that reaches new heights, moves beyond the ordinary and represents excellence in aesthetic and technical design achievement. Judging is a rigorous and blind process; only those projects demonstrating consistent design quality and technical expertise receive award recognition after three straight days of judging.

IES

 

The American Medical Association (AMA) Council on Science and Public Health (CSAPH) has issued two reports related to nighttime lighting since 2012. The 2012 AMA Report CSAPH 4-A-12 report, Light Pollution: Adverse Effects of Nighttime Lighting, resulted in AMA Policy H-135.932, noting in particular the “need for further multidisciplinary research of occupational and environmental exposure to light-at-night”, the recognition of how interior lighting and the use of electronic media affect sleep disruption especially in children and adolescents, and the need for work environments operating in 24/7 fashion to have employee fatigue risk management plans in place. The IES supports the 2012 AMA Policy H-135.932. Read more: IES Report. . .
