Building on the success of last year's inaugural program, Tucson-based UltraLights Architectural Lighting has announced the winners of this year's competition: Cameron Miller and Brandon Schans. Students were asked to design a wall sconce or bracket for the entry of a 10-story office building in Denver. The fixtures had to be wet-listed, use either high output fluorescent or metal halide sources, and acknowledge dark sky regulations, along with budget and size constraints.
UltraLights president Jim Restin conceived the program to introduce architectural students to lighting design during their studies. A five-person jury of design, architecture, and lighting professionals, reviewed 34 entries. The competition is held in conjunction with the University of Arizona's College of Architecture.
