Light has the ability to transform spaces, tell stories, and cultivate communities. Crafting a story with light requires an architectural comprehension of space, and an ability to construct a narrative through a non-traditional medium. Through manipulation of space, light, and time, we can create beacons that welcome, inform, and impart a tangible cultural experience from an ephemeral source. Join Zachary Suchara, Principal at Luma Lighting Design, for a conversation on the newly-renovated Japanese Garden Cultural Village. Explore how light was used to transform this new iconic landmark within the garden, and how these effects radically shape the viewer’s experience.

Design Museum Portland is redefining what it means to be a museum in the 21st century — we're online, nomadic, and accessible to all through a network of exhibitions, events, and content. Our mission: Bring the transformative power of design everywhere, to inspire a world full of creative problem solvers. Design is everywhere. So are we. This is a ticketed event.
