Truth and Misconception: LED Lighting Today

Ever wonder how a technology you only heard of recently could immediately become the best solution for all of your architectural lighting needs?  As the expression goes, if it sounds to good to be true, it probably isn’t.  A small scale, non-mercury based light source with great potential to reduce energy consumption traditionally associated with lighting, LEDs represent the most dramatic shift in lighting technology in our lifetime.  This introductory level talk provides attendees with knowledge required to navigate the ever-increasing field of LED products and to better evaluate manufacturer claims.

Please join us Wednesday March 9th, as we welcome lighting designer Glenn Shrum to our next brown bag luncheon. Originally trained as an architect, Glenn Shrum received a Masters of Fine Arts in Studio Art with an emphasis on lighting installations and light art history from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2008.  In addition to his professional activity as principal of Baltimore based Flux Studio, Shrum is an active member of the international lighting design and education community. He is currently US coordinator of the Professional Lighting Designers’ Association and part time faculty at Morgan State University and Parsons The New School for Design School of Constructed Environments in New York City.

This talk is eligible for self-reporting AIA/CES credits. An instruction hand-out will be given to anyone interested in receiving credit.
