Parsons' Symposium to Address Lighting in the Developing World

Light is taken for granted in the developing world, and it is easy to forget that, according to the World Bank, 1.6 billion people live without electricity. Students in the MFA lighting design program at the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons the New School for Design in New York have spent the past two years exploring the issues that surround bringing light to the rest of the world, all under the guidance of Craig A. Bernecker, associate professor of lighting design. Their efforts are ongoing, and on June 10, the school will hold a public symposium titled "Lighting the Developing World." The daylong program (starting at 8:30 a.m., and followed by a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.) will be held at the New School's Tishman Auditorium (2 West 13th Street). For complete details contact Craig Bernecker at berneckc@newschool.edu. Read more
