lighting architecture movement project




about L A M P

‘Lighting Architecture Movement Project’ was founded in 2013 as a group installation & exhibition showcasing light and form through the lens of architectural design.  

L A M P was created to offer designers an opportunity to engage their talents in unique conceptual explorations and to connect the local community to architecture and design.  

2014 reimagines L A M P as an international design competition open to all ages and creative backgrounds.  The event will curate 10 jury picked lights that will be exhibited at an event in November.  The top 25 designs will be shown in their concept sketch form at the event and will be open to a public vote. The top ten lights will be showcased in front of key players in the design community providing opportunity to receive manufacturing guidance and industry contacts. The winning design will receive a critique by the Creative Director of FontanaArte.  

The L A M P Vancouver event draws in a large crowd of artists, architects, product designers, students, local business entrepreneurs and design enthusiasts. The exhibition will be accessible to the public for the week following the event. The top designs will reach broad media exposure through our popular online presence, connecting participants to a global market. The winning entry will be featured in GRAY Magazine.

L A M P bustles with MOVEMENT. It sets itself apart from other architectural lighting & design competitions & events with its unique incorporation of engaging multi-disciplinary elements.
