Reviewing Student Work at SCI-Arc
Archit Jain was invited to be one of four guest critics at the Southern California School of Architecture (SCI-Arc) to review graduate and undergraduate student projects and discuss the role of light and lighting design in architecture. Billed as Light Work, the installation of student work throughout the SCI-Arc building was part of coursework from the Environmental Systems seminar led by faculty Ilaria Mazzoleni and Russell Fortmeyer.
Archit felt that some of the graduate lighting installations– which explored the use of light in conjunction with materials, color, digital effects, and motion– were professional enough for display in a light installation exhibit. The undergraduate work, which investigated architectural design with an emphasis on lighting, demonstrated technical details at a student level, but there was no shortage of out-of-the-box, creative ideas.
Great job Ilaria and Russell for guiding your students towards interesting and intriguing work within just a few weeks of lighting studies. Hopefully some of your students would like to become lighting designers in the future!
