Congratulations, Jason!

Jason Rainone has earned the Certified Lighting Designer (CLD), the first international, evidence-based certification in architectural lighting design. Jason is among the first lighting designers in the world to earn the new international certification, which demonstrates that he has a proven track record of excellence and has successfully validated his skill in a rigorous assessment process that defines  high standards of professional practice.

The certification process, governed by the Certified Lighting Design Commission, is designed to assess the ability to operate as a lead architectural lighting designer in a professional and proficient manner by considering a person’s imaginative, technical, and professional responsibility skills.

“We congratulate Jason on earning the CLD. This global benchmark of performance demonstrates his proficiency in developing, guiding, and completing lighting design projects,” said David Becker, Chair of the Certified Lighting Design Commission.

GWWO Architects just announced that the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center has received an AIA Maryland Excellence in Design Merit Award and been named the 2020 Public Building of the Year!

Congratulations to the entire team that worked on the project! Haley Sharpe Design were the exhibit designers and we designed the exhibit lighting. See some of the exhibit photos below!

According to the GWWO press release, the building was chosen from over 100 submissions. The jury praised the building’s design, expressing: “There are so many aspects of this project that made it the winner of Building of the Year. In terms of design excellence, the forms and organization of the structure not only fit within the landscape but also help tell Harriet Tubman’s story. We are living in a time when Americans need to understand our history and celebrate its heroes such as Tubman whose actions affected so many people. She continues to be a role model and this Visitor Center does her story justice."

Thank you to Todd Gerrish, who organized the New England Chapter, Bill Murray (head in RI), and all of our friends and colleagues who went out to put up lights and take photos.
