IALD Welcomes New Members to College of Fellows

The IALD is pleased to welcome three new members to the IALD College of Fellows. The IALD Fellow designation is awarded to members of the IALD for contributions to the art and science of lighting design, and for their continued service to the IALD. Fellows are professional members with a minimum of 10 years of experience. Patricia Glasow, FIALD, Mark Major, FIALD, and Kevan Shaw, FIALD, were inducted at the IALD Enlighten Americas 2018 conference in Seattle, and will be recognized at the IALD Enlighten Europe 2018 conference Nov. 7-9, in Barcelona, Spain.

Patricia Glasow, of San Francisco, managing principal of Auerbach Glasow, has designed and managed lighting projects throughout North America, Asia, and Europe. She began working in lighting in her early teens and has been designing ever since. Formally trained in theatrical lighting design at University of California, Los Angeles, she worked for Walt Disney Enterprises early in her career. Those first years served as her transition to architecture and the firm she has led and helped grow for the past 34 years.

Patricia’s strength lies in the blending of design and technical expertise particularly for specialized installations. Some of her projects are the Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in San Francisco, the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, and the University of California, Berkeley School of Law South Addition.

Patricia is passionate about promoting the profession and mentoring young lighting designers. She has been administrator and trustee of the Robert Bruce Thompson Charitable Trust for 18 years. Through its annual Student Light Fixture Design Competition, the Trust has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to students representing over 40 colleges and universities.

Trained as an architect, Mark Major, London, focuses on the relationship between light and architecture. As a principal at Speirs and Major, he has worked on a range of award-winning projects including the Millennium Dome, the Beijing International Airport, and the re-lighting of Saint Paul’s Cathedral. Mark acted as the lighting design advisor to the Olympic Delivery Authority for the London 2012 games. The same year, he was appointed to the Mayor of London’s Special Assistance team for the Outer London Fund. Mark completed the Lighting Vision for the city of London.

Actively engaged in lighting education, Mark has lectured both in academic and professional settings in the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, Australia, and the U.S. He has published works on the lighting for public consumption and on topics on light and darkness. Mark also co-created “Made of Light- the Art of Light and Architecture,” an educational projection show that first exhibited at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London and that also featured a companion book of the same name.

Kevan Shaw’s career in lighting began over 40 years ago, 30 of which have been at his firm, Kevan Shaw Lighting Design. Formally educated in economic and technical history and social psychology, Kevan, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, was the first non-engineering degree holder to attain chartered engineer status through the Institute of Lighting Professionals in 2012.

Kevan’s achievements in the field of lighting design consist of more than 650 projects completed worldwide and across a broad range of fields. Notable projects include the Scottish Parliament Debating Chamber, the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and the Scott Museum in Edinburgh.

He is the recipient of numerous lighting awards and was named Lux Awards Lighting Designer of the Year in 2013.

A contributor to lighting education for most of his career, Kevan has taught at Hochschule Wismar and is currently a visiting lecturer at Edinburgh Napier University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. He also provides a distance learning course at the Technical University of Iceland. A devoted advocate for the lighting design profession, Kevan has served on the IALD Membership Committee, currently serves as a member of the European Union Regulatory Affairs Working Group and will be completing his fourth year on the IALD Board of Directors at the end of 2018. Congratulations to Kevan.
