International Summer Lighting Workshop
Practical knowledge about lighting for budding architects and lighting designers
Students reading architecture, interior design, landscape architecture and lighting design are to receive crucial impulses for their education directly from a leading company from the German lighting industry. ERCO GmbH in Lüdenscheid is inviting students worldwide to come to an international lighting workshop entitled “Light as the fourth dimension of architecture.”
In a four-day event, experienced architects and lighting designers will be providing seminar participants with well-founded knowledge on lighting design and the perception of light; on lamps – e.g. economical light sources such as LED; and on architectural, accent and ambient lighting. The ERCO Light Factory has an extensive range of demonstration tools, special indoor facilities and outdoor grounds at its disposal for studying how diverse lighting effects actually work in practice. The aims of the workshop include not only to provide teaching on lighting technology and on the fundamentals of perception, but also to increase students’ competence in lighting design so that in their studies they will be able to develop and fine-tune their designs following lighting design criteria. In the final analysis, it is the combination of design intelligence and high-quality lighting tools that helps implement sophisticated lighting solutions and efficient visual comfort for the users.
The International ERCO Summer Lighting Workshop from the 17th – 20th of July 2012 will also include lighting design exercises and an excursion to exemplary projects for museum and shop lighting, thus ensuring the theoretical knowledge of lighting design can be directly related to practical applications.
A list of venues for further trips gives students impulses for making their own visits to interesting projects for architecture and lighting in the Ruhr-valley region after the Lighting Workshop has finished.
Interested students can register themselves individually for the International Summer Lighting Workshop in English. The course fees are 50 euro. If required, ERCO would assist with board and lodgings. Students should make their own travel arrangements. For information and registration please go to: www.erco.com/seminars.
