Full video for Designing with Light (Efficiently)

Join the Building Energy Exchange for Designing with Light (Efficiently), a discussion on incorporating efficient industrial lighting design into architecture.

The event will begin with a presentation by lighting designer Kenzan Tsutakawa-Chinn, of Studio 1Thousand, a company focused on LED art and technology. Perhaps best known for its large scale, architectural illumination installations, Studio 1Thousand has produced work for the Museum of the City of New York, Perot Family Headquarters, L&C Tower Nashville, the University of Chicago, and the Portland Winter Light Festival. One of the studio’s works is also featured at the Building Energy Exchange. Studio 1Thousand was a recipient of the 2015 IESNYC Lumen Award of Citation for Starlight, a dynamic lighting installation created for the Museum of the City of New York.

Following the presentation will be a moderated discussion with Stephen Cassell of Architecture Research Office, who worked with Studio 1Thousand on a memorial wall for Congregation Beit Simchat Torah. Panelists will speak to working with specific client requests through prototyping, fabrication, and installation phases. They will discuss some of the challenges faced in considering manufacturing limitations, value engineering, and other technical and cultural concerns.
