"Luminous Walls" Lecture by Thomas Schielke: Monday, October 18, 2010, 4:30 PM, G73 MVR
Thomas Schielke is an expert in lighting design and technology. Luminous walls: From grazing light via modernist wallwashing to pixelated planes Luminous walls belong to the essential repertoire of qualitative lighting design. With light, spaces can be defined and reinterpreted. Illuminated walls allow us to provide orientation and to perceive the form and dimension of space. Further, their glow and play of brilliants could bestow a space with an impressing scenography. The guest lecture by the German architect Thomas Schielke reveals a timeline to explain different lighting approaches: Early
grazing light, from backlit clerestory windows for spiritual enlightment in the gothic period to modernist uniform wallwashing. Contemporary examples will open the view for pixelated colour changing planes based on LED technology. The talk with an overview of international projects covers lighting methods and techniques for luminous walls and their visual appearance. With a perception-orientated design perspective the architect could use vertical illuminance to create bright spaces and thereby also contribute to sustainable lighting solutions.
Schielke will also participate in Design & Environmental Analysis interdisciplinary design studio during his visit to Cornell.
