The Met Breuer: Restoring a Masterpiece

Join SBLD Studio (Lighting Designer), Beyer Blinder Belle (Architect and Conservationist) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art's lighting team for a truly special 'night at the museum'. We will have private access to Marcel Breuer's mid-century masterpiece, discovering how the design team sensitively restored the many original bespoke light fixtures, including the lobby's famous array of glowing discs. The tour will conclude on the gallery floors with the Met's lighting team as they share their experiences of inheriting this fascinating space.

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.
