Take part of the interesting symposium exploring the dynamic potential of environments in which both natural and artificial forms of light activate interior space. This year’s Luminous Talks, titled The Changing Room, held at Parsons on November 12, will bring together architects, designers and scholars. Renowned speakers will address this theme from a variety of perspectives, which include architecture, lighting design, science, and cultural theory.

How are our perceptions of time and space shaped by the constantly shifting movement of natural light within an interior space, and what role do architectural materials and finishes play in forming these perceptions? How can new lighting technologies expand historical applications of artificial light and affiliation with natural illumination? Given our rapidly expanding understanding of the powerful effects of lighting conditions on the human body, what can cutting-edge scientific research tell us about the impact on our health as we move through and inhabit these highly changeable and interactive spaces? These are just some of the issues to be addressed in The Changing Room.

Keynote speakers of the Luminous Talks 3 event: Jeffrey Schnapp (Harvard’s metaLAB), Adam Yarinsky (FAIA Principal – Architecture Research Office), David Lewis (AIA Associate Professor – Parsons; Principal – LTL Architects) and Kevin Dowling (PhD Vice President of Engineering, 4moms).
