Lighting Design on a World Stage and Emerging Trends in Daylighting
Bryan Stacey, ARUP, New York

In an era of active material investigation, light has become an increasingly important ingredient in the pursuit of optimal and unforeseen material effects. One notable trend has been the adoption of fiber optic principles of bending and extending light to a variety of materials—such as light pipes, acrylic tubes, and mirror ducts. These principles have been harnessed to produce responsive material effects at the scale of a detail, as well as smart day lighting and energy optimization strategies at the scale of a building.

Brian Stacy leads the Arup Lighting effort in the Americas region, and is responsible for overseeing the lighting groups in New York and San Francisco office. He has extensive experience designing lighting and related systems for a range of exterior and interior environments in the cultural, civic, entertainment and corporate sectors. His projects vary to include bespoke solutions for products, through to the optimization of light, natural and electric.

He is a LEED Accredited Professional and has spoken for the New York City Chapter of the IESNA on what the LEED rating system is and how to become accredited. Stacy speaks regularly as a guest lecturer for various universities and lighting conferences. Since joining Arup, Stacy has been instrumental in building an international network of lighting designers within Arup. The core business of this network is designing integrated daylighting and architectural lighting, including control systems for museums. As a part of the multi-disciplinary approach, Stacy takes an active role leading project work for the New York City office, and looks to incorporate sustainable principals even into iconic features. Prior to joining Arup, Stacy was the resident lighting designer at The Field Museum in Chicago, Illinois. During this residency he designed exhibition lighting for new installations and major renovations.
