OUT OF SHADOWS: Darkness in a New Light
AIA CES Course Lecture by Abhay Wadhwa, AWA Lighting Designers
Tuesday October 6th 2015 at 6pm

Evocative visual environments require a healthy balance between bright and dark, light and shadow. In a context where the success of a lighting design solution is often measured by the footcandles achieved, uniformity ratios and wattage consumed, are we losing the plot here? Can light truly be appreciated without shadows and darkness? Lack of a better understanding of darkness and shadows can lead to an altogether lopsided relationship with light and light alone. The absence of its contrasting partners in darkness and shadows can have a diminishing effect on the true beauty of light.

This talk examines our lighting zeitgeist and showcases methods of embracing light and dark, while conforming to the relevant code requirements.
