Licht Kunst Licht win top IALD Award

19 May 2011 09.00 BST


(USA) - Licht Kunst Licht AG have been presented with the top prize at this year’s International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) International Lighting Design Awards. The Radiance Award was given in recognition of the practice’s work on the Telekombridge in Bonn, Germany, after a panel of expert judges deemed it the best of the projects to be honoured this year.

Taking place on 18 May to coincide with the annual Lightfair International tradeshow, the IALD Awards commended seventeen architectural lighting design projects during a gala event at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia, USA.

Of the 17 projects recognized, three entries earned Special Citations, eight earned Awards of Merit and six earned Awards of Excellence.

Diane McNabb Rodriguez, Associate IALD and IALD International Lighting Design Awards Chair, was thrilled with this year’s recipients. “The IALD received nearly 200 submissions to its call for entries. The sheer number of winners is evidence that this year’s awards judges had their work cut out for them as the caliber of work submitted raised the standard for excellence in lighting design to a new level.”
