Susan has won numerous awards for her lighting design work, including an Innovation Award from Women in Construction.

Working with a large engineering firm gave me the opportunity to work on some really significant projects both in Australia and overseas. The redevelopment of the GPO at No 1 Martin Place gave me exposure to an area that’s become another interest of mine, incorporating new services into heritage buildings. One project I worked on, the relighting of The Rocks laneways, got me interested in working at a precinct scale. That led me to a degree in urban planning, and now I’ve just completed a Masters of Philosophy in Architecture. I think you need to keep developing what you do to keep it interesting.” Susan Lambert Researcher in the Faculty of Society and Design at Bond University “I think you need to keep developing what you do to keep it interesting.” St Francis Cathedral, Heritage Façade Lighting Upgrade, Adelaide.

At university level, the number of women studying lighting design has been climbing steadily; at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), female candidates in the Master of Lighting have been increasing. In 2004, women starting the Masters in Lighting and other design degrees with a minor in lighting made up a mere 12 per cent of enrolments in first-year lighting design units. This jumped to 50 per cent by 2008 and a potential 70 per cent for 2014, pending final close-off of enrolments. Other universities haven’t shown such dramatic increases – at Massey, women made up around 25 per cent of enrolments in the Graduate Certificate in Science and Technology (Lighting) last year, but the general consensus seems to be that lighting-specific classes are slowly achieving a more even spread.
