Testimonials

Extraordinary Range of Lighting Design Projects!

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.

Co-CEO of Perkins Eastman
