From New York to Berlin, a conversation about lighting
Between May 21 and 25, the Javits Center in New York hosted the 2023 edition of LightFair, one of the main international events in the field of architectural lighting.
Our colleague Noemi Barbero, Director of Lighting Design, Building Physics at IDOM (Architecture), was in attendance. This was the perfect opportunity to exchange ideas on the future of lighting with colleagues from the world’s most important lighting design firms, as well as representatives from the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) committees.
Following her trip to the United States, Noemi, a lighting design expert with experience in projects such as the Ancient Egypt Lighting Masterplan, the Momamed VI Polytechnic University, and the Dwarka Convention Centre, will travel to Berlin to participate as a speaker at the IALD’s top-level forum, Enlighting Europe Berlin23 (30 June-1 July, Café Moskau).
Noemi will share her experience in the design and implementation of lighting projects at Ancient Egyptian sites (2010 to 2017), in a session entitled “Lighting the Land of the Pharaohs | Ancient Egypt Lighting Masterplan”. She will discuss the challenge of illuminating the UNESCO World Heritage archaeological sites of ancient Thebes, including the Temple of Luxor, the Royal Tombs of the Pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings and the Pyramids of Giza. The session will focus on conveying the narrative of Pharaonic architecture through light, heritage conservation and integration, using respectful solutions and current technologies. Undoubtedly, an opportunity to discover the secrets of lighting in the land of the pharaohs.
