Our First Book Releases in Spring 2020!
CONTEXTUALIZING LIGHT LIGHTING DESIGN SOLUTIONS IN A CHANGING WORLD

This book examines how the context of a project can provide a causative force for creating an appropriate architectural lighting design solution. Why should the lighting world be flat, and at the cost of the amazing variety of local nuances and ideas that can be incorporated into the architectural design process and solutions? Why are we looking to build an illuminated world at night that looks similar to other places? When did darkness become bad? Should the dialog not be about embracing the differences in culture, design approach, and other conditions that each region of the world provides, while embracing light as a universal medium? How do the new lighting technologies impact our evolving zeitgeist?

These ideas and concepts are highlighted in the 18 essays written by the author in this book. These are further illustrated with examples from over 63 completed projects spread over 23 countries in the past 18 years of being in practice. Through this treatise, the author also shares ground-breaking research, where he discusses a holistic approach for using lighting to create spaces for health & wellness.

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.
