Soularium, undertaken in collaboration with NY based healer, Barbara Davis Thomson recognizes the human heart, the glory of the human soul, human dignity, the empowerment of the individual, and the importance of finding inward completion through vistas of tactile,auditory, visual, olfactory, and sensory experiences.This project is slated to be installed in multiple locations around the world.

Our first book "contextualizing light " is on its way

This book examines how the context of the project provides a causative force for an appropriate architectural lighting design solutions. Why should the lighting world be flat, and at the cost of the amazing variety of local nuances that can be incorporated into the architectural design process and solutions?

Extraordinary Range of Lighting Design Proejcts!

In works that span nearly two decades and several continents, AWA's each project expresses AWA's conviction that light informs and even creates experience, and that light itself is bound inextricably with form, space, volume, culture and human perception - the very stuff of architecture.

-Thomas Vonier
President of the International Union of Architects (UIA)

One of the Most Unique Firms to Work with in the Industry!

Over the years, AWA Lighting Designers has been an essential part of that creative process, and one of the most unique firms to work with in the industry. Their understanding of light as an art form that can be sculpted through shadow and nuance, rather than simply a utility, is why their collaboration on projects has made such an impact. Their use of technology as part of the design process has helped numerous design teams to both visualize the effects of lighting on space and research the effects on the human psyche.
