An Evening of Light and Inspiration from the ILP offers a creative agenda for lighting designers.
The Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP) continues to offer a special program of events and educational material for the lighting design community, with the announcement of its ‘Evening of Light and Inspiration II’ taking place on 6th October at Building Design Partnership’s (BDP) London offices.
The evening will feature a talk by Wolfgang Buttress called ‘Light in the UK Pavilion’. Buttress is the artist and creative lead behind the UK Pavilion Milan Expo 2015 and worked alongside structural engineer Tristan Simmonds. He has won numerous awards including ‘Best of Best Iconic Award for the 2015 Pavilion work and was the first Western artist to win the prestigious Kajima Gold award in Japan for ‘Space’ (2014).
The beehive inspired British pavilion was one of the first structures to complete at the Expo and Buttress’s design is themed around the lifecycle of a bee and the contribution of bees to the planet’s health.
He will discuss how the use of light and sound was crucial in creating an immersive and fully sensory experience.
Later in the evening lighting designers will also get an opportunity to contribute to the developing architectural agenda at the ILP and learn what educational initiatives are in the pipeline for the coming year.
‘This promises to be an inspirational talk. It follows hot on the heels of an excellent agenda organized by the ILP to support the architectural lighting design community. We’re committed to collaborating with designers and encouraging new members to join’, says Mark Ridler, Vice President Architectural of the ILP.
The event starts at 6pm and is free to all who register.
