Winners of the 2020 IESNYC Lumen Awards

It’s our pleasure to celebrate the 2020 IESNYC Lumen Awards projects and recipients. Though a small number of truly masterful projects are elevated, the Lumen Awards program celebrates our entire lighting design community. We embrace passion, extraordinary effort, and resourcefulness in lighting, wherever they’re found. This year, that embrace means more than ever.

In these extraordinary times we join with the entire New York City lighting community in honoring the 2020 Lumen Awards recipients. Until we meet again to raise a glass in celebration, we embrace you and wish you well.

—Lumen Awards Co-chairs: Clara Powell and Adrienne Shulman

An update on the quest for smart-city streetlights in Los Angeles

LA currently maintains about 223,000 streetlights with over 400 different designs dating back to the beginning of the 1900s. Over 4,500 miles of city streets are lit for a population of four million, illuminating not only the roadways, but the sidewalks and pedestrian walkways, bridges and tunnels.
