• Parsons Intensive Lighting Design Masters Studio is a week-long immersion experience in lighting design. Targeted to practicing professionals, it offers the opportunity to expand knowledge and capabilities in lighting design and serve to refresh and reinvigorate skills and gain experience with cutting-edge techniques in lighting design practice. Taking advantage of the expertise in the MFA Lighting Design program in the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons The New School for Design, participants spend a full seven days in the studio environment working on an integrated electric and daylighting design project sited in New York city, participating in hands-on exercises to better understand the role light can play in architectural environments, and learning design techniques to achieve excellence in lighting design, while at the same time taking advantage of the vast resources in the New York metropolitan area.
