Lighting designers are a tremendous resource of innovative, practical and economically viable lighting solutions. They understand the role of lighting in architectural and interior design and utilize their extensive experience and knowledge of lighting equipment and systems to enhance and strengthen design. IALD members worldwide must subscribe to the highest educational and ethical standards in order to belong to this prestigious community, and are accepted as Professional members on the strength of their portfolios and recommendations. IALD Professional membership is only available to architectural lighting designers who have at least five years of experience in the field in the role of senior designer or above in an independent consulting practice.
Created for and by architectural lighting designers, Enlighten Americas delivers the high-caliber content and connections you need to stay competitive, bring new opportunities to light and reignite your creativity to power your career forward. The best and brightest architectural lighting designers from around the world attend the IALD Enlighten conferences to learn, network, and connect.
