The futureoflighting design?
Ihave always said to the younger light-
ing practitioners that the most important
thing is to equip yourself with solid profes-
sional knowledge instead of piling up lots
of projects. The lighting design industry has
come along way to establish itself and for
the lighting designers to be recognised.
Lighting designers survive gingerly in the
design chain and would lose everything that
have been established if they cannot meet
expectations.
