Lighting : April 2010 Whos Who of Lighting
24 LIGHTING MAGAZINE | April/May 2010 2009 IESANZ INtErNAtIoNAl lIghtINg AwArdS IES A WARDS has also been replaced with LEDs. Most of the lighting is provided by separately addressable RGB LED modules which allow the auditorium to be lit in the traditional way with white light or to light it with any of the colours available from RGB colour mixing. Since each luminaire is addressable the lighting can be dimmed and/or colour-changed in both space and time. The lighting system provides a vast improvement on the earlier lighting system and has been judged to be highly desirable by those who use the auditorium, including the Queensland Symphony Orchestra. This is an innovative solution to the problem of upgrading the auditorium lighting and is mostly successful with only a few blemishes. Some seating positions allow direct views of the LED wall washing reflectors that can be a disturbing distraction if they are operated during a performance. However, the blemishes can be remedied which would result in an otherwise excellent solution. suPPLIeRs: Darkon, ULA Group, Targetti, Creative Lighting MccAuLeY ResIdence, Mt KILcoY designers: steve Johnson, Webb Australia group (QLd) Pty Ltd,; Kelly gray, sPARc Architects; Peter Linderberg, demonics Judges’ coMMents: This project has the characteristic of success seen in many others: a high level of collaboration between the lighting designer, architect, builder and specialist electrical and lighting control contractor.
