Dubia-based architect to reveal lighting secrets

Wael al Awar, principal architect and founding partner at Dubai-based Ibda Design, is giving a speech at Index Exhibition 2012 about interior lighting which will take place next week on the 25th of September.

The talk will be focusing on the evolution of interiors through the surveillance of natural lighting in houses.

Concentrating on three sections including the evolution of interior space from a self-contained box of the pre-modern era to the bright spaces and fluid boundaries of the modern era as well as the context specific space of the century, al Awar will also provide samples of Ibda’s work.

The examples will showcase the firm’s experimentation with natural lighting as a design feature for interior spaces.

In addition to personal examples, the talk will also feature examples of different spaces by master architects, elaborating on the various approaches to designing through the use of natural light.

Ibda Design is an architectural, urban and design firm founded in 2009 with offices in Tokyo and Beirut as well as its base office in Dubai. The firm works on both regional and international projects.
