The 36th annual IALD International Lighting Design Awards returned to the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia, PA, USA on 22nd May to honour the best lighting design projects from around the world over the last 12 months.

The awards, held during LightFair International, celebrated 23 projects from twelve countries, including exteriors, interiors, workspaces, museums, hospitality sites and places of worship, with the winners representing some of the most innovative and inspiring architectural lighting design work found anywhere in the world.

Of the 23 projects recognised, twelve earned Awards of Merit, while eleven won Awards of Excellence. The highest point score winner across all entries also received the IALD Radiance Award for Excellence in Lighting Design – one of the highest honours in architectural lighting design.

Lighting Design International were awarded the Radiance Award this year for the Kimpton Fitzroy in London. Ben Ferris, Senior Designer at LDI, was in attendance to collect the award.

Of the awards, IALD Awards Chair Morgan Gabler, IALD, said: “This year was exceptional in both the calibre of all the projects we reviewed, as well as the increase in awards submitted from designers around the world. The lighting design award entries showcase an ever-increasing level of creativity, design and sophisticated application of light. 

“IALD Awards recognise award-winning projects that go beyond distinction in architectural lighting – they evoke emotional responses, engage their communities and inspire awe. We are excited to celebrate and honour all the 2019 award winners.”
