An investment in innovative tool such as LightLab, thought leadership and excellence in product design took Arup to the top
’An astonishing run of fantastic projects’ over the past year accelerated Arup to the top slot at the 2016 Lighting Design Awards.
The team consisting of over nearly 100 lighting designers spanning nine countries, has for many years consistently produced a high standard of work, with many award-winning, well-executed, sustainable solutions around the globe including the Investcorp Building, Glasgow School of Arts’ Reid Building, SSE Hydro, Hong Kong International Airport MFC, the London 2012 Aquatics Centre, Harvard Art Museums and Louvre Lens.
The award also recognised the team’s investment in innovative tools such as the LightLab, the importance placed on thought leadership, and efforts made in product design. In addition, Arup won ’Daylight Project of the Year’ with Los Angeles’ newest museum, The Broad, and was highly commended in the same category for it’s work on the Fulton Centre in New York.
In recognition of its 40th anniversary, the Lighting Design Awards gave special focus to the new generation of lighting design talent, announcing its list of 40 Under 40.
Arup’s James Duff in Dublin and Star Davis, New York, featured in the list - recognising Arup as a firm that thrives on and nurtures young talent.
