Luminaire-integrated Controls: How Easy is Easy?

That's the question hanging over today's "easy-to-configure" lighting control systems! Join the DLFNY and the IESNYC for a tour of the Next Generation Lighting Systems evaluation of seven systems at The New School through a collaboration with the School of Constructed Environments, Parsons School of Design.

As you will see, each system in its own room was evaluated by NGLS judges for installation, configuration, lighting and control performance. Ruth Taylor, Project Manager at Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (PNNL) and members of the NGLS team and manufacturer representatives will be on hand to provide perspective and answer questions.

Installed manufacturers: Cree, Crestron, LumenWerx, Nextek, Philips, Rab, Selux, Starfire

Natural Light and Architecture
Parsons School of Design

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—featuring leaders in the field including Davidson Norris from Carpenter Norris Consulting, Star Davis from Arup and others—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.
