On April 1, 2004, Jeffrey I.L. Miller exchanged his role as director of lighting design at NBBJ for the same title at Affiliated Engineers. He will be based in the company's Seattle office. Miller brings over 25 years of architectural lighting design experience to Affiliated's Pivotal Lighting Design Studio. Miller explains that this new partnership is structured around an integrated approach, enabling lighting and building systems design to be developed in unison and thereby providing a more comprehensive package of information for architect and client.

Recent projects under his direction to receive acknowledgement for design excellence include the McCormick Tribune Student Center at the Illinois Institute of Technology for Rem Koolhaas/OMA/ Holabird & Root, and the Grand Hyatt hotel in Hong Kong with Hirsch Bedner. Miller is an active member of the IALD, currently serving on its board of directors. ed
