The IES Albany Section is proud to present our October 2021, in-person, AIA Presentation Understanding the Importance of Dark Skies followed by a Walking Tour of the Troy Waterfront project. Alex Katz, Regional Sales Manager for Canada and New York State with Selux Lighting will be the presenter.

Excessive and unrestricted light from bollards, columns, and post tops can negatively impact people, animals, and the environment. However, fixtures that are designed to Dark Sky specifications can dramatically reduce the amount of sky glow and light pollution while saving energy and mitigating impact on the environment. This learning unit will explore the concept of Dark Sky and how architects can specify luminaires to help reduce light pollution and encourage a healthier and more responsible approach to lighting.

“Although the impacts of light pollution are considerable. It is the easiest form of pollution to address”.

Participants are eligible for one (1) AIA CES or LU / HSW credit (Health Safety and Welfare)
