Winner Sylvan R. Shemitz Memorial Scholarship Competition 2011
About the competition:
In honor of its founder Sylvan R. Shemitz, one of the innovative forces behind asymmetric lighting, The Lighting Quotient initiated a new student scholarship in partnership with the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America. Designed for the future generation of lighting designers, engineers and architects, all second, third, fourth and fifth year undergraduate or graduate students in accredited lighting degree programs are eligible to apply.
Applicants must design the lighting according to the building criteria laid out that year, and using a set of plans provided by the Lighting Quotient. Submission must include the lighting plans, lighting fixture schedule and specifications. This year the plans were for a nursing home called “Top Health” which is located in West Haven CT.
