Lecture 1 - Lighting fundamentals


Founder and principal director of Light Bureau Paul Traynor took us through the fundamental principles that underpin the craft of working with light, as established by lighting pioneer Richard Kelly in the 1940s. Kelly created the first independent architectural lighting practice as we would recognise it today - advising titans of the time including Louis Kahn, Philip Johnson and Mies van der Rohe. Case studies from Light Bureau projects demonstrate these principles in action and their continued relevance to designing spaces today.
